“Start-ups, such as those enabled by the CBB-Praxis partnership, can help unlock the deep technological value that is present in graduate research. It’s an excellent opportunity to enable graduate students at Waterloo to leapfrog promising research ideas out of the lab and towards the marketplace, where they can benefit people living with spinal cord injuries.”

This collaboration was made possible by generous support from the Government of Ontario.
