Advanced Platform Technology Center

The APT Center is a catalyst for initiating and sustaining productive interactions between clinicians, consumers and engineers who had not previously applied their specialized knowledge and technical expertise to rehabilitation-related problems. This infusion of new investigators in the areas of biomaterials and microsystem design, fabrication, packaging and communication represents a critical mass of investigators dedicated to developing technologies to serve disabled veterans that would not otherwise exist. Our "platform," therefore, is as much an approach as a physical device. It is a method for matching emerging technologies with high priority clinical needs, building transdisciplinary collaborative teams composed of investigators named here to successfully translate initial concept to a medical device ready for clinical application.
