Who We Are

Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Praxis facilitates an international network of people with SCI and other world-class experts to work together to identify, prioritize and solve the most urgent challenges.

Our vision is a world without paralysis after SCI. To achieve this, we take a multi-disciplinary, adaptable approach to maximize our impact. This enables us to move the most promising ideas out of the laboratory, into a standard practice of care, into the marketplace and ultimately, into the hands of the people who need it most.

By working to address all of these areas simultaneously, and with national and international partners within the SCI community and beyond, we are uniquely positioned to make exceptional improvements in the health of people with SCI.

Our vision is a world without paralysis after SCI.

Our mission is to lead collaboration across the global spinal cord injury community by providing resources, infrastructure and knowledge; and to identify, develop, validate and accelerate the translation of evidence and best practices to reduce the incidence and severity of paralysis after SCI, improve health care outcomes, reduce long-term costs, and improve the quality of life for those living with SCI.
