About Us

Our objective is to develop new therapies for motor disability affecting children and adults. These therapies result in the development of technical support and medical devices designed to compensate for motor disability - particularly through pharmacologic approaches or biotherapies aimed at correcting motor disability for the spinal cord injured patient or the neuromuscular patient, among others.

Our pluridisciplinary team gathers varied medical specializations, as well as physiotherapists, engineers and physicists. The research project focuses on two main scientific orientations: motor disability and infectiology linked to neurological handicap.

These two scientific orientations divide into 5 specific areas:
1) Neuromuscular diseases.
2) Disability due to spinal cord injuries.
3) Disability due to brain injuries.
4) Pain management and prevention for motor disabled people.
5) Risks and infectious consequences of motor disability.

The CIC-IT rests on a state-of-the-art, complete technological platform, and a strong and dynamic partnership with the industry and associations. Within each area, problematics associated with innovative technologies and drugs or other assimilated products are dealt with. Translational research efforts particularly focus on the field of neuromuscular diseases.
