Dr. Milos Popovic, Senior Scientist, Toronto Rehab, was honoured with the UHN 2014 Inventor of the Year Award, presented by the Technology Development & Commercialization team at the Annual General Meeting.

This award recognizes his creation of MyndMove – a commercialized product that delivers electrical stimulation to paralyzed muscles reproducing movement in arms and hands. This technology is helping stroke and spinal cord injury patients regain movement in their upper extremities that they didn't know they'd have again. And, in many cases, function is being restored many years post-injury.​
