SCI Recovery Program

What We Offer

Project Walk Kansas City is a unique facility that uses exercise to go beyond what traditional rehabilitation can offer, when long-term recovery is the goal. Our programs are specifically designed to be aggressive, personal, and goal oriented. Clients work 1-on-1 with a specialist, in order to maximize the effectiveness of the program. What makes the Project Walk Kansas City Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Program unique is the combination of traditional, and non-traditional therapy equipment that is used to help deliver a more effective recovery program. A few of the special pieces of equipment that we utilize in our facility are:

Easy Stand 6000 Glider          Power Plate Pro5          Vitaglide

Gait Training System          RT300-SLSA FES          NuStep

Activity-Based SCI Recovery

Exercise improves heart function and lipid profile by lowering total cholesterol. It lowers resting heart rate and blood pressure. Being active reduces the risk and severity of diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity, and it improves strength, balance, endurance and long-term brain health. For people with a SCI, these benefits can lead to fewer secondary health complications, increased independence, and a greater quality of life.

Potential areas one could expect to see improvements include:

  • Increased central nervous system activity
  • Improved cardiovascular & pulmonary function
  • Increased circulation
  • Improved skin integrity
  • Increased bone density
  • Increased muscle mass
  • Decreased secondary health issues associated with a spinal cord injury
