Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
Project Walk is proud to announce that it will be opening a new spinal cord injury recovery location in Las Vegas, NV. Project Walk has more than 14 years of experience and research to support its activity-based recovery programs for individuals who have a spinal cord injury.
Founded in 1999, Project Walk provides activity-based recovery programs designed around industry leading research, training, and state-of-the-art technology to increase mobility in clients who have a spinal cord injury. For over a decade spinal cord injury victims have had to travel across the world to participate in Project Walk’s program. Through the opening of new locations and various home recovery options, individuals who suffer from spinal cord injury are finding more options that are accessible in their recovery efforts.
“We are extremely excited to bring a Project Walk Franchise to the city of Las Vegas so we can now offer the world class programs and training services provided by Project Walk to the local spinal cord injury community,” says Carrie Heieck, Spokesperson for Project Walk. “
Project Walk is the most advanced spinal cord injury recovery program in the world. Clients can begin the program as soon as they leave the hospital and can continue full-time at a center or at home through the most comprehensive integrated home care model on the market today. The Dardzinski Method®, practiced only at Project Walk, is supported by published research that shows 71% of clients improve function below the level of injury.
“It is a dream come true to become a franchise owner of Project Walk,” explains Terry Moffatt whose fiancé suffered a spinal cord injury back in 2010. “We looked long and hard for an opportunity to be a part of a successful business that truly helps people and we couldn’t be more excited to work with the world leader in this field.”
“The plan is to work with our new franchise owners to get the center opened by the end of 2013,” says Heieck. “We are already taking employment applications to staff this new Project Walk location with client applications soon to follow.” The new franchise owners will be looking to hire an Office Manager as well as new Project Walk Specialists. Interested applicants should visit Project Walk’s website for more information.
“Opening of a Las Vegas location is just the beginning of our global growth plan,” explains Heieck. “We are currently reviewing dozens of applications from groups all over the US and internationally who want to become Project Walk Franchise Owners. The Las Vegas location will deploy the newest training techniques and state-of-the-art technology based on the research conducted at Project Walk Headquarters. We are very selective in the franchise process because we view our franchise owners as not just our partners in business but partners in helping change lives, which we take very seriously,” explains Heieck.
