In 2013, the Restorative Neurology Clinic at Burke Neurological 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, other neurological conditions. The clinic was launched based on many years of clinical studies at the Burke Neurological Institute which explored therapies using exoskeletal robotics pioneered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Utilizing robotic-assisted therapy has been proven to lead to significant and meaningful improvements in motor function for individuals living with a neurological condition.
Since the clinic’s launch it has offered a comprehensive upper limb robotics program focusing on restoring movement and function in shoulders, elbows, forearms, wrists, hands and fingers, essential for upper body movement and fine motor skills. The Restorative Neurology Clinic is proud to expand its offerings to include an extensive lower limb robotics program focusing on restoring movement and function to hips, legs, knees, and ankles, essential for revitalizing everyday lower body movement and learning to walking again.
Individuals use a wheelchair may also participate in the upper limb program to benefit from maintaining or improving motor recovery, cardiovascular endurance and muscular stamina.
