Glenrose Rehabilitation Research, Innovation & Technology



To be successful, a patient’s rehabilitation journey requires dedication and determination (courage and grit). Rehabilitation is critical not only for the patient but also is dependent upon their family, clinicians, and caregivers, all of whom can benefit from innovative technologies and processes that can maximize the patient’s rehabilitation potential.

The Glenrose Rehabilitation Research Innovation & Technology (GRRIT) hub was established to advance rehabilitation research, innovation and technology development by engaging with our partners to develop technological solutions for challenges experienced by practitioners and people living with physical or cognitive disabilities.

GRRIT works with collaborators from academia, industry, entrepreneurs, clinical staff, patients, and families.

GRRIT supports the development of innovative products and solutions by offering access and exposure to clinical settings, traineeships, specialized equipment, technical advice, and clinical evaluations.

GRRIT also collaborates with external partners with expertise in engineering, design, business development, and marketing.


By using existing AHS resources along with funding provided by the GRH Foundation and external funding groups, such as the National Research Council-Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), Alberta Innovation and Advanced Education and the federal Prairies Economic Development Canada (PrairiesCan), GRRIT has been able to develop the mechanisms to provide support for appropriate collaborations.

This meets the dual purpose of improving our patients' and their families' lives and creates opportunities for our collaborators and partners.
