Aspire CREATe, the Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology, is an exciting joint research venture between the Aspire Charity, University College London and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore. The centre was established in 2014 to develop translational research to help improve the quality of life of people with spinal cord injuries.
