Research Focus Swiss Paraplegic Research

Research Focus

The research field of Swiss Paraplegic Research (SPF) follows a transdisciplinary and inclusive approach.

The fundamental basis for SPF’s research activities is the Swiss Spinal Cord Injury Cohort Study (SwiSCI). SwiSCI serves as a research platform for SPF’s research groups as well as for national and international groups of stakeholders with questions related to clinical and community-oriented research. Within this core project, SPF has been collaborating closely with the four paraplegic centers in Switzerland, Swiss Paraplegic Association (SPV), persons with spinal cord injury from all over Switzerland, research teams at Swiss universities, Swiss centers for neurorehabilitation and a series of European and international research groups since 2010.
