In 2013, the Restorative Neurology Clinic at Burke Medical Research Institute established a self-pay clinic to offer breakthrough state-of-the-art robotic neurorehabilitation therapies for individuals who are recovering from stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or other neurological conditions. Individuals who are wheelchair bound may also participate in the upper limb program to benefit from maintaining or improving motor recovery, cardiovascular endurance and muscular stamina.
The Restorative Neurology Clinic is proud to offer a comprehensive upper limb robotics program focusing on restoring movement and function in shoulders, elbows, forearms, wrists, hands and fingers to regain muscular strengthen, joint control, range of motion, flexibility, coordination, and precision. Through repetition of cutting-edge robotic therapy the primary neruorehabilitation goal is to build strength, engage muscle memory and awaken neuro-plasticity, the healing of brain nerves, essential for upper body movement and fine motor skills.
Cutting edge robotic therapy for the upper limb consists of intensive repetitive therapy performed three to two days a week over six weeks.
