  • New NIH-funded Restore Center - Call for Pilot Project Applications Up to $30K

    We are pleased to announce the launch of the Restore Center and our call for pilot project applications. The Center is an NIH-funded center led by Scott Delp, professor of bioengineering at Stanford University. The Center’s mission is to create a worldwide collaboration to gain insights from real-world data on rehabilitation outcomes. You can read more about the Center’s services below, including our call for pilot project grant applications. If you would like to receive updates on the Restore Center’s activities, sign up for our mailing list and follow us on Twitter at @restore_center.

    We hope you will engage with the Restore Center and work with us to achieve the potential of mobile technology to monitor real-world function and improve care.
