  • are 50 years old or older;
  • live in the community.

What do you need to do? You will be required to attend 7 testing sessions over a period of  two years. Each session will take 2-3 hours.

Where? These sessions can take place either at G.F. Strong (4255 Laurel Street, Vancouver), Blusson Spinal Cord Centre (818 West 10th Avenue, Vancouver), at your home, or a location of your convenience.

Participants will be paid a participation fee.
