The UCL Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (CREATe)
The UCL Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (CREATe) based at the Stanmore campus, performs translational research that will ultimately improve the quality of life of people with spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Aspire CREATe blends assistive technology with advanced rehabilitation devices to actively promote the restoration of function. Although the driving force behind our research is SCI, we are not limited to this domain and so much of our research is also applicable to related areas of interest, such as stroke, muscular dystrophy and the ageing population.
The London Spinal Cord Injury Centre (LSCIC)
The London Spinal Cord Injury Centre (LSCIC) at the RNOH is one of only 11 in the UK designated to receive and treat spinal cord injured patients. LSCIC has a philosophy of delivering the whole process of spinal cord injury care, from acute care through rehabilitation and reintegration, to on-going review with late intervention within one overall team. This care is delivered by a structured multidisciplinary team with appropriate involvement of different specialists and disciplines as the process continues.
The Centre currently has 24 beds comprising of eight acute beds and 16 rehabilitation beds. However there is the capacity to treat up to 40 patients within the RNOH at any one time.
