Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2013
SCI Business Solutions Inc., the exclusive operator and franchisor of Project Walk® Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center announces a new three-year partnership with Restorative Therapies™ Inc. (RTI), the world’s leading developer of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) powered systems.
Through this strategic partnership, clients of Project Walk franchises are guaranteed to receive the highest level of care through Restorative Therapy’s medical devices including RT300 FES cycles; the first Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) system to revolutionize FES rehabilitation. RT300 enables users to engage peripheral nerves activating muscles through electrical stimulation creating a patterned movement of the legs or arms. RT300 has been used in over 650,000 therapy sessions by over 20,000 adults and children with neurological impairments since its inception in 2005.
In addition to RT300, Restorative Therapies will deliver RT200 FES elliptical and the newly released, FDA cleared RT600 FES Stepper to Project Walk Headquarters located in Carlsbad, CA. Project Walk Headquarters will be the only center west of Colorado to have RT600, the first physical therapy system of its kind to bring FES technology to a weight-supported stepping device.
“RT600 utilizes all of the popular RT300 FES cycle’s great features including personalized muscle selection, dynamic motor support, secure Internet connectivity and ease of use,” says Andrew Barriskill, CEO of Restorative Therapies.
As the world leader in spinal cord injury recovery, Project Walk maintains its reputation by setting itself apart through activity-based programs in conjunction with using state-of-the-art equipment, research and methodology development. The partnership between Project Walk and Restorative Therapies ensures that clients of all Project Walk franchised locations receive the latest offerings from Restorative Therapies, keeping in theme with Project Walk’s mission of providing the most technologically advanced products to those attending a Project Walk center.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Restorative Therapies, Inc. as we both aim to help people with neurological impairments achieve their full potential,” says Brian Malkinson, Director of Operations for SCI Business Solutions Inc. Malkinson continues, "This partnership is unlike any other, in that it brings years of research and development from both Project Walk and Restorative Therapies to the spinal cord injury community and other Special Populations just by visiting a Project Walk franchised location."
Project Walk is confident that the collaboration will not only bring its clients an improved quality of care through the latest technology backed by research; but hopes that the partnership brings new findings and developments for those suffering from a debilitating injury or condition.
