NeuroHope has opened its doors!

Our initial crowdfunding campaign is complete, and the generous contributions of many individuals have helped us achieve our initial goal.  Now, the real work begins!  The continued backing of our donors is critical throughout our early stages as we work to ensure the presence of a safe, secure, state of the art facility.

Here are some ways your contribution can be put toward support of our immediate needs:

  • Sponsor a client: $100 (unlimited)
  • Medical Billing Software: $500 monthly cost
  • Medical Documentation Software: $300 monthly cost
  • Laptop computer: (2) $1,000
  • General therapy equipment (e.g. mats, cones, support belts, assitive devices):  $50 to $500
  • Future costs include funding for state of the art equipment referenced on our services page.  A PowerStep system and HydoWorx therapy pool combined may cost $300,000.

NeuroHope is a registered 501 (c) 3 tax-deductible charitable organization.

Major Equipment Funding:

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Arm/Leg Bike: $36,540

FES arm fnFES uses electricity to stimulate muscles to prevent atrophy and promote circulation.  While cycling, this machine can stimulate 16 muscles groups in the arms, legs and trunk.  FES Stimulation of nerves evokes patterned movement of the legs or the arms and enables muscles to perform work even though an individual may have lost all or some voluntary control of the muscles.

Hydroworx pools have a built in treadmill and camera system to aide patients and therapists.

Pool therapy is an excellent therapeutic tool.  Water provides buoyancy, which offers significantly less pressure on the joints and spine.  When immersed in water up to the neck the amount of weight pressing down on the body is reduced by 90%.  Water up to the waist reduces pressure by 50%.

Water is also a medium that supports and assists movement.  It offers a safe and pain-free setting to focus on regaining strength and joint range of motion.
