Brief Bio:

Anita Kaiser became a quadriplegic as a result of a motor vehicle crash in 1996. She was one of the inaugural recipients of the TD Scholarships and received support for 2 years when she was doing her Master of Science degree in Rehabilitation Science through the University of Toronto. Anita is passionate about increasing access to ABT (activity based therapy) in rehabilitation and the community for people living with SCI. It is this passion that has motivated her to pursue PhD studies. Over the past year, Anita took the initiative to develop a tracking tool for ABT. At the Canadian ABT Summit in March, the absence of a tracking mechanism for participation in ABT (e.g. tracking of mode, intensity, frequency and performance of ABT) was identified as a gap. Anita presented her tracking tool at the summit and her contribution was voted the “Most Novel Idea” by the attendees! For her PhD research she will further develop, validate and implement the tracking tool.
