Lawson Impact Awards Innovation Award: Dr. Dalton Wolfe
For more than 30 years, Dr. Dalton Wolfe has been conducting innovative research to improve mobility for those who are facing long-term injuries, such as spinal cord and brain injuries. He is being recognized with the 2022 Lawson Innovation Award for this work.
“We want to help people impacted by these conditions right now, developing innovations that can immediately be implemented into patient care,” says Dr. Wolfe, Lawson Scientist at St. Joseph’s Health Care London’s Parkwood Institute.
One of the most recent studies surrounds a new tool for those living with a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) called MyBrainPacer™ App. The app is an online tool that tracks and assigns values to everyday tasks such as driving, grocery shopping and exercising to help users pace their daily activities. The user is then given a total number of points per day that will keep their mTBI symptoms in a safe range.
