It’s official! NeuroHope is moving October 1st! Walls are being torn down, ceilings altered, and construction is underway to provide our clinic with a new home as we ramp up and expand services for 2018.
We are proud to partner with the Incrediplex, a 4-acre sports and entertainment complex in Lawrence (6002 Sunnyside Rd.) that is building our new gym attached to their existing wellness center on the east end of their “Incredible” campus. The dream we had four years ago to open a hybrid rehabilitation / wellness clinic for people living with neurologic injury is becoming a reality this fall. In moments like these, when the work and sacrifices made over the years come to fruition, we pinch ourselves and hope we don’t wake up!
We are also honored to have been formally invited by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation NeuroRecovery Network (NRN) to join their prestigious collaboration of rehabilitation / wellness centers. NRN sites implement state-of-the-art therapy and wellness programs tied to evidence-based practices uniquely performed and researched at the best rehabilitation centers in the world, including The Shepherd Center (Atlanta), Craig Hospital (Denver), Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation (New Jersey), and Frazier Rehabilitation Institute (Louisville).
NeuroHope will be the 12th NRN site, and the 6th independent gym in the world (not tied to a clinical hospital system) that will be participating in unique NRN programs and providing patients with affordable post-acute therapy and exercise.
We have already started to practice some of the NRN’s exclusive Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) sessions. These pictures show two of our rockstar patients (Nathan and Mark) standing while hooked up to 12 channels of stimulation. The bottom picture shows the NRN treadmill system that will be at NeuroHope after our move!
As a NRN satellite, we will be collecting data at NeuroHope and will be teaming with researchers from the University of Indianapolis to track outcome measures and program satisfaction.
(Much more on THIS exciting development soon!)
When NeuroHope opened its doors two years ago, our vision including bringing a NRN site to Indiana. It seemed far-fetched. This fall, it too, will be a reality thanks to support from organizations like the University of Indianapolis, the OrthoIndy Foundation and our many sponsors and supporters.
We are ready!
