The core activities of the Swiss Paraplegic Group (SPG) are education, research and innovation. Research helps us improve existing know-how and uncover new techniques. Our cutting-edge research methods allow us to explore and develop solutions and strategies for specific issues. We use our research results for the long-term development of our clinical care services and the life-long accompaniment of people with spinal cord injuries, addressing the latter’s questions on everything from physical capacities to cultivating a sense of well-being in their everyday lives, for the rest of their lives.
SPG research opens up previously unknown possibilities for all areas of life, and keeps our products and services innovative and competitive. To this end, we have incorporated Swiss Paraplegic Research with the SPG, and set up our Clinical Research Department at the Swiss Paraplegic Centre.
