Head: Dr Rui Loureiro
Aspire Create, the Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology, is an exciting new joint research venture between the Aspire Charity, University College London and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore.
The centre was established at the beginning of 2014 to develop translational research to improve the quality of life of people with spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Currently, it houses six academics (Dr Tom Carlson, Dr Lynsey Duffell, Dr Sara Ghoreishizadeh, Prof Rui Loureiro, Dr Steve Taylor and Dr Anne Vanhoestenberghe), along with their researchers. This rapidly growing centre investigates techniques that are applicable and transferable between different domains in related areas of interest, including, but not limited to spinal cord and nerve injury, stroke, muscular dystrophy, amputation, the ageing population and training of specialised skills (e.g. surgical).
- Our office is located at UCL's Stanmore campus, on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital site in the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science (IOMS), building number 6 on this map (Grid ref. 8D).
- Our main lab is located on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital site in the Peripheral Nerve Injury unit (PNI), building number 37 on this map (Grid ref. 5E).
