This excerpt and video taken from the Brock University Website:
Spinal cord injuries alter lives; maximizing independence through the little things can make a big difference.
David Ditor, associate professor of Kinesiology, and his lab was featured in a CHCH TV segment “Spinal rehab lab helps Brock researchers.”
His research focuses on the incremental improvements to physical conditioning for people with spinal cord injuries to reduce the prescence of secondary ailments.
Through his research in spinal cord injuries he has developed numerous ties to Rick Hansen, which earned him a spot as a medal bearer on the St. Catharines stretch of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay.
His dedication to spinal cord research has also gained recognition, and will see him featured by CTV as one of 25 difference makers in spinal cord research.
