Activity-based therapy (ABT) is a restorative approach that promotes neurological recovery below the level of injury in individuals with spinal cord injury or disease (SCI/D). This study sought to understand how ABT and its associated technologies were being used in community-based facilities across Canada.


One to two participants from ten community-based ABT facilities completed a semi-structured interview that queried types of technologies or techniques used in ABT, and barriers and facilitators to providing ABT for individuals with SCI/D. Interviews were audio-recorded and transcribed verbatim, and analyzed using an interpretive description approach to identify themes and categories.
