Should the following Tier 4: up to $60,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Community category be approved?
The Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital is one of the largest comprehensive tertiary hospitals in Canada, serving patients of all ages who require complex rehabilitation to enable them to participate in living life to the fullest.
The hospital uses innovative technology, equipment and programs, and is considered one of the premier hospitals for mental health and psychiatric services for children and seniors, as well as cardiac rehabilitation for adults.
This grant aims to create an additional source of donations for the hospital through NFTs, which will be created by the patients. The Glenrose hospital foundation is also the first ever to enter DCL in partnership with iMining Technologies and adds adoption and awareness in the DCL Ecosystem.
Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital enters the metaverse to create an additional source of donations in partnership with the Metaverse Advisory Group, a fully owned subsidiary of iMining Technologies, and the Manhattan DAO.
The Glenrose Foundation aims to raise funding for the Glenrose Hospital, so the Hospital can continue to develop innovative, technology-based solutions which provide individuals with disabilities live a better, more fulfilled lives.
Currently, the Hospital, among other initiatives, is working on developing a revolutionary technology, the Brain Computer Interface (“BCI”). This cutting-edge technology harnesses the power of imagination, allowing people with mobility and communication challenges a new way to interact with their environments. To help explain the complicated technology, the Glenrose Foundation produced a video featuring a young boy named Liam. The video demonstrates how BCI works and the impact it makes on the lives of kids like Liam.

The Glenrose foundation’s vision is to create a recurring stream of funding for the hospital, so they can continue to work on improving people’s lives. Given that the Glenrose Foundation has shown such great commitment towards Decentraland. We hope that the community will show support for this grant.
In order for healthcare institutions to adopt and participate in the DCL community, the Glenrose Hospital foundation metaverse presence will highlight innovative, technology-based solutions which provide individuals with disabilities live a better, more fulfilled lives.
Some of the technologies in use at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital to help broaden the Decentralnd’s community understanding of the work taking place there are:
