We are thrilled to announce a two-year grant from the Indiana Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Fund that will track the health and hospital re-admittance rates of NeuroHope patients.
People living with paralysis must overcome much more than the ability to move. Pressure sores, urinary tract infections, muscle contractures, and other complications from inactivity send 30% of patients to the hospital at least once per year, and cost the healthcare system thousands of dollars every time.
On November 1, we begin work with the University of Indianapolis to monitor how often NeuroHope patients are afflicted with or hospitalized with these conditions, compared to the national average of people with neurologic injury.
Providing an atmosphere of access for the programs patients need to stay healthy remains a core principle of what we do. This grant will help tell the story of the lives we change, and will strengthen our mission to revamp the standard of care in Indiana and beyond!
