Dr. Chester Ho

Dr. Ho is a clinician, researcher and health services administrator in the field of spinal cord injury (SCI) rehabilitation. His focus is health services delivery, as well as the management and rehabilitation of complications following SCI, such as pressure injuries and the use of functional electrical stimulation in the promotion of function and mobility. Another major focus of his work is on the implementation of evidence-based treatments such as functional electrical stimulation (FES) cycling for exercise training after SCI.

He has created a regional program for the use of functional electrical stimulation cycling that spans from the inpatient rehabilitation setting to the community in Calgary, Alberta, and is in the process of creating international, evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on the use of FES cycling after SCI, which will facilitate further clinical adoption of this treatment.
