See Our Victories in Action

The University of Louisville's Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center has basic and translational research taking place right alongside the best in clinical care at Frazier Rehab Institute. It is our lab's proximity to that clinical care that makes those daily, incremental victories available to patients possible. Locomotor training is a cornerstone to recovery of function below the level of injury, reducing secondary complications and improving quality of life.

We have pioneered research and practice of activity-based therapies, specifically locomotor training, to promote recovery for kids after spinal cord injury. We have seen improved abilities to sit, stand, balance, and step. People of all ages with paralysis will now have the opportunity to benefit from the research and clinical application of scientific findings.

Who We Are

Victory Over Paralysis is an international team of neuroscience experts wholly committed to finding groundbreaking treatments in paralysis for children and adults.

Participate

If you or someone you know is interested in participating in our research, we have several ongoing projects. The first step is to register in our database & answer a few questions.

Research

Every spinal cord injury is as unique as the person who experiences it. We strive to understand each patient's injury, the impact on the individual’s life, and how to overcome it.
