The CSCIR has searched the globe to bring the most advanced and innovative technologies for SCI recovery to the center. A summary of some of the equipment used in our program includes:
Ekso is a wearable bionic suit that enables individuals with lower extremity weakness, to stand and walk over ground with a natural, full weight bearing, reciprocal gait.
Therastride is a body weight supported system for intense locomotor training. Locomotor training is designed for the recovery of walking for individuals with central nervous system injury or disease.
Redcord is a unique and effective concept for functional training. Carefully designed training using body weight and slings is at the core of the concept.
Whole Body Vibration (WBV)
WBV is a training method that uses low amplitude, low frequency, mechanical stimulation that produces greater muscle activation and helps increase bone density and build strength.
The L300 Foot Drop System is a revolutionary medical device that helps people regain mobiity and independence. The system's gait sensor adapts to changes in walking speed and terrain, allowing the user to walk easily on stairs, grass and carpet.
The H200 Wireless Hand Rehabilitation System stimulates the appropriate nerves and muscles of the forearm and hand, and helps to reeducate weak or paralyzed muscles.
RT300 Leg and Arm
The RT300 leg and arm cycle utilizes functional electrical stimulation (FES). FES enables muscles to work and perform activities even though the muscles may be weak or paralyzed.
The LiteGait is a gait training device that simultaneously controls weight bearing, posture, and balance over a treadmill or over ground. It is designed to assist patients with a wide range of impairments and functional levels.
Second step is a gait harness system that allows for safe and therapeutic gait training.
Overhead Tracking System
The CSCIR's overhead tracking system provides a safe environment for advanced gait training.
