New look. New name. Renewed purpose.

The Rick Hansen Institute is now Praxis Spinal Cord Institute. We may look different, but our commitment to the SCI community is as unwavering as ever. Praxis exists to lead global collaboration in SCI research, innovation, and care. We will continue to advance groundbreaking ideas that can be put into practice, making lives better.

In fact, that’s what our new name means. Praxis is the practical application of a theory – it’s about moving knowledge into action. The icon in our new logo is based on a cross-section of the spinal cord. It reveals an image that resembles a butterfly—a beautiful symbol of hope that captures our relentless pursuit for superior solutions.

We hope you’ll take a moment to take a look around our website to learn more about us. And feel free to connect with us!
