Rehabilitation is defined as bringing one back to normal after suffering an injury, illness, drug problem, etc. (Merriam-Webster) and it’s something that both the victim and their family & friends deeply desire regardless of the issue or cause.  In the 21st century, humanity has the technology to engineer solutions to any problem given the right research and resources.  Here in our own backyard of Toronto, ASME Ontario Section is proud to give you the chance to see one of the world’s most technologically advanced rehabilitation research environments and its cutting edge laboratories.
