Applied clinical research

At the Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC), we conduct applied clinical research to make improvements to the acute care and rehabilitation of people with paraplegia and other conditions associated with spinal cord injuries.

As a company, the goal of the SPC is to develop its research. SPC Director Hans-Peter Gmünder, M.D., sums it up nicely: “Without clinical research, there’s no such thing as clinical excellence.” Such an attitude highlights the importance of applied clinical research in the SPC’s ability to provide the best possible medical and therapeutic care to its patients. Clinical research is carried out by various departments within the SPC on an interdisciplinary basis, and in direct contact with patients.

Each year, around 15–20 new clinical research projects get underway at the SPC, while 50–60 scientific papers are published by or in conjunction with SPC employees.
