Growing up, Ian Burkhart was adventurous and athletic. Then, an ill-fated dive into an ocean wave after his first year of college rendered him a quadriplegic. Since his injury, Burkhart has restored some movement in his right hand as a result of his participation in an innovative neural bridging research study through the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and the Battelle Memorial Institute. In this session, he’ll discuss the technology that has allowed him to progress and explain what it’s like to work hand-in-hand with researchers to develop a solution that could someday help others who have suffered spinal cord injuries.
