New UAB lab helps spinal cord patients cope

Published: October 23, 2008

A new lab at UAB’s Spain Rehabilitation Center offers spinal cord injury patients a look at how technology can help them overcome disabilities, particularly in using computers and other electronic equipment.

The Dr. Samuel L. Stover Assistive Technology Laboratory is being dedicated at 12:15 p.m. today at the Center for Psychiatric Medicine. The lab is named for a former chairman of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s department of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

“We want to empower patients with information,” said Phil Klebine, project coordinator for the lab.
