Praxis Spinal Cord Institute – SCI Accelerate Program 2021 Consumer Survey

Praxis SCI Accelerate Program 2021 is an 18-week acceleration program for health start-up companies with solutions that address care- and cure-related treatments and overall quality of life of individuals with SCI. Learn more about the SCI Accelerate 2021 program and cohort.

This Survey is part of our direct consumer engagement!

We need to learn more about your experiences and challenges in 4 specific areas:

  1. Bladder function,
  2. Skin moisture/integrity and thermoregulation,
  3. Exoskeleton (standing and walking), and
  4. Shoulder, arm and hand function.

This information is critical for these companies in their development and commercialization of products and services that will directly impact those living with SCI.

At the end of the Survey, you will be asked if you would like to enter your name in one or more of the following:

  1. A draw for a $100 Amazon gift card.
  2. Participate in an upcoming Consumer Focus Group.
  3. Receive information about Praxis Spinal Cord Institute.
  4. Receive information about the four companies selected to participate in Praxis SCI Accelerate 2021.
