Toronto Rehab ushers in a new era in rehabilitation science
TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - There is nothing else like it in the world. iDAPT - Intelligent Design for Adaptation, Participation and Technology, houses a six-degree-of-freedom motion simulator located in a laboratory four storeys below ground that can recreate different environments, like winter blizzards and bustling streets, and outperform most flight training simulators. That is just one feature of what is the most technologically-advanced rehabilitation research centre in the world.
Located in the heart of Canada's 'Discovery District' in downtown Toronto, iDAPT's 'living labs' are a quantum leap forward in rehab research. Researchers from around the world will be able to generate new knowledge, more practical technologies and innovative treatments more quickly and accurately and in total safety to reduce accidents and illness and help people overcome disability.
