About NeuroGym

 

NeuroGym® Rehabilitation provides unique, evidence-based physical and occupational therapy for motor impairments due to neurologic injuries or conditions. We also see individuals with complex post-surgical orthopaedic issues.

 

NeuroGym® is a one-of-a-kind rehabilitation centre with techniques and patented tools that have been developed over more than 20 years of research and clinical work in the field of neurologic rehabilitation.

 

Our aim is to optimize the retraining process by creating a 'neurological gymnasium' - in essence a 'gym' program for the recovering brain and nervous system.

Our goal at NeuroGym® is to improve functional independence by creating the most effective training environment possible. To do this, we use equipment and techniques that help enable active movement. For example, the Sit-to-Stand Trainer helps individuals to re-learn the standing motion and to develop the strength and coordination to do so more independently. The Bungee Mobility Trainer enables safe, effective practice of balance and gait. The Pendulum Stepper assists individuals with regaining lower extremity mobility and strength. Our patented NeuroGym® Trainer combines biofeedback with computer games so that everything from fine motor skills, facial muscle control and balance can be intensively trained.

 

These are just some of the tools our therapists use in creating a dynamic and effective treatment plan for each individual. But effective rehabilitation requires more than just equipment, it requires the scientific knowledge and understanding of how motor re-learning is best accomplished and the experience to implement a training program that will achieve optimal treatment results. At NeuroGym® Rehabilitation we make it a priority to stay on the leading edge of therapeutic techniques by keeping up-to-date with current research in neuro-rehabilitation, motor learning and physiology of exercise.

 

All of the NeuroGym® training protocols provide measured outcomes as we strive to provide the most effective, research-based physical rehabilitation possible.
