The Spinal Cord Rehab Innovation Challenge — COVID-19 Q&A Session (online)

June 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Thank you for your continued interest and engagement in the $200K Spinal Cord Rehab Innovation Challenge, which asks innovators to propose new tools to measure rehabilitation activities and their impact on function in individuals living with spinal cord injury.

Given the great difficulties that COVID-19 has caused, MaRS and Praxis have made the decision to update the Challenge Rules as follows:

  1. The deadline for submissions is extended to November 19, 2020.
  2. In lieu of submitting actual data and/or in-person stakeholder engagement information, entrants may provide plans detailing how data and/or in-person stakeholder engagement information will be collected once related COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
  3. For Submissions that include plans, judges will base their evaluations on plan feasibility and how implementation of the plan would fulfill the Challenge Judging Criteria.
  4. Top 3 Submissions will be announced no later than December 21, 2020.

This Q&A session will review these changes, and answer queries and concerns from attendees.
