Dr. Kedar K. V. Mate BSc., PT., M.Sc. PhD, Post-doctoral Fellow
Kedar has PhD degree in rehabilitation science from the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy (SPOT), McGill University. He is currently a Research Fellow at the Mayo Clinic, Arizona, USA and a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Centre for Outcomes Research and Evaluation at the McGill University Health Centre Research Institute. He is trained as a physiotherapist and specializes in rehabilitation of adult and pediatric neurological conditions. He is passionate about neuroscience and recovery potential following neurological insult. His research is focused on establishing links between what a patient can and cannot do, linking information obtained from outcome such as PROs; ClinROs; PerfOs and TechROs, among people with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, and older adults.
His interest to work in the field of neuro-rehabilitation and evidence-based practice stemmed from the realization that there is a need to move research into clinical practice while exploring potentials for new technologies. This lead to establishing a McGill supported start-up PhysioBiometrics Inc. (https://physiobiometrics.com) of which he is a Vice-President of Research and Development. The mission of the enterprise is to provide usable practical solutions to harness the power of the brain to move better, faster, longer, stronger in hands of the people who need them.
He is a certified neurodevelopmental therapist and has extensive experience in treating people with stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's, among others. His research background gives him the needed expertise to move research into clinics. Kedar is active in the research world and community organization. In 2019 he kickstarted the Parkinson’s Canada Superwalk at Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, in Montreal. He is involved in student supervision and regularly presents his research work at various regional, national and international scientific meetings.
