The Restore Center awards Pilot Project grants to innovative and meritorious projects to accelerate the use of sensor and video technology in rehabilitation research and to advance real-world monitoring and delivery of medical rehabilitation for individuals with impaired movement. 

Program Details

Each pilot project can request access for research funds over a one-year period. Pilot project awardees will gain access to mentoring and support from the Restore Center’s faculty and staff, in addition to funding for their research. Further, the program launches awardees into leadership roles within the Restore Center network. Projects should have a strong scientific component and demonstrate alignment with the Restore Center’s mission. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
