Welcome

At the PROPEL Lab (Paediatrics, Rehabilitation, Orthotics, Prosthetics, Engineering, Locomotion) , we are interested in studying and developing new technologies and techniques to help individuals with severe physical disabilities walk again and be physically active.  Read more about our Mission.

The PROPEL Lab is part of the Bloorview Research Institute at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.  Dr. Jan Andrysek leads the PROPEL Lab, bringing together a team of professionals who focus on rehabilitation engineering, prosthetics, orthotics, assistive devices, engineering design, biomechanics, human gait, gait and balance assessment, video-game based rehab, evidence-based practice, and technologies for developing countries.
