Business and Industry

Out of the Lab and Into the Market

Commercialization is an important thrust at Toronto Rehab. We are determined to get innovative solutions into the market so people can use them as soon as possible. We welcome the private sector as a partner in developing our ideas into products that enhance peoples’ lives.

We also help businesses test and develop their own ideas into useful products. Our list of industry partners is growing as more companies take advantage of our expertise, design and prototyping services and unique labs located in the heart of Canada’s ‘Discovery District’ in downtown Toronto.

Our interactions with companies are producing new medical devices, assistive technologies and advanced home care products. We are also creating jobs and wealth in our community by providing the assistive devices sector in Ontario and Canada with a competitive edge.

Our Philosophy 

We’ve pioneered a new and different model of research-industry collaboration. Our industry-friendly program involves companies as equal partners in developing products, from the concept stage onwards. Click here to learn more about how we collaborate.

Toronto Rehab is a member of MaRS Innovation. The Ontario Rehabilitation Technology Consortium (ORTC), a network of assistive technology researchers, is also headquartered at Toronto Rehab.
