Praxis Spinal Cord Institute

Praxis is part of the life-changing work done in the life sciences sector, and plays a key role in the development of new technologies and treatments for those living with spinal cord injury (SCI). Our vision is a world without paralysis after SCI.

Praxis advances SCI research and innovation worldwide through networks of international researchers, health care professionals, clinical trials, entrepreneurs, investors, and people with lived experience of SCI (PLEX).

Driven by the priorities of people with spinal cord injuries, the four distinct areas of focus for Praxis are:

Pioneering PLEX leadership and engagement with those living with SCI
Catalyzing networks of people and data
Ensuring the latest research and knowledge is used in the health system
Speeding up the availability of new SCI technology to those who need it
Praxis takes on the role of identifying priorities, marshalling resources, and driving knowledge translation. From our home in Vancouver, Canada we facilitate an international network of people with SCI and world-class experts who work together to identify, prioritize and solve the most urgent challenges.

To achieve this, we take a multi-disciplinary, adaptable approach to maximize our impact. This enables us to move the most promising ideas out of the laboratory, into both standards of care for people with SCI. We also work to get new technologies from idea, to development, and ultimately available to improve the lives of those dealing with SCI in their lives.
