The initial pilot period in 2017-19 generated input from people with SCI, their families and clinicians that contributed greatly to the development of VIP4SCI. Our thanks to them for helping create this online portal that we hope will be a reliable and welcome resource to our community. Our research project partners included: ForaHealthyMe Inc., Centre for Family Medicine Mobility Clinic in Kitchener Waterloo, University Health Network and SCIO.
