Please select your target from the following list:
Universal masking is still required at UHN.
Meetings – In-person meetings are limited based on the need to maintain 1m distancing. Masking is required during the meeting and no food is allowed.
UHN still requires that staff and visitors (including research participants) coming to UHN sites are fully vaccinated (at least two doses).
Tours - Tours are allowed at KITE sites. Full tour guidelines are listed in the Kite Restart Tour Policy document on the Return to Work (RTW) web application dashboard.
Social Gatherings - In-person gatherings are limited based on the meeting room capacity limits needed to support 2m distancing as best as possible. Food or drink can only be consumed when people can maintain at least 2m distance from each other, and masks must be worn when not eating or drinking. Social gathering food and drink consumption guidelines include; only pre-packaged food/drinks, no food/drink sharing, sanitization of surfaces and shared equipment is required before and after use, hand sanitizer must be available in the room (preferred) or adjacent to the room.
Organizing Social Gatherings – Consider implications for the departments/groups involved if a COVID-19 transmission event occurs. Teams should ensure a plan is in place in the event that multiple staff members cannot attend work due to acquiring infection.
The Movement Evaluation Lab allows researchers to develop and evaluate new diagnostic techniques and therapies aimed at improving the control of movement and mobility. These include treatments that focus on improving the health of the brain, cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal systems in order to maximize the capacity for independent and safe mobility. This lab is situated within the hospital’s stroke rehabilitation unit. Specialized equipment includes motion tracking devices, force plates and pressure mats. Detailed measurements are made of the nervous system (electroencephalography, peripheral stimulation), musculoskeletal system (electromyography) and cardiorespiratory system (metabolic cart, electrocardiography, blood pressure). Training equipment for ongoing trials includes treadmills with body-weight support and specialized ergometers.
