Bimal Lakhani is currently Senior Scientist at HealthTech Connex Inc. in Surrey, British Columbia. He completed his B.Sc. degree at the University of Waterloo in Kinesiology, his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Toronto in the Department of Rehabilitation Science and his post-doctoral fellowship at the University of British Columbia in the Department of Physical Therapy.
Bimal's research is focused on improving the overall quality of life for individuals affected by neurological disorders by understanding the specific mechanisms that result in motor and cognitive challenges, and by working to develop novel rehabilitation technologies that target those challenges. He is continually researching methods to therapeutically modify brain structure in order to improve upper and lower extremity function, recover balance and mobility deficits, reduce the risk of cognitive decline and enhance the overall quality of life following brain injury.
