Magee Rehabilitation Hospital
1513 Race Street
Magee's experience with Locomotor Training led to an opportunity to be one of two founding members of the NeuroRecovery Network (NRN) sponsored by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The mission of this network is to create a system of specialized centers designed to provide standardized activity-based rehabilitation therapy to individuals with incomplete spinal cord injury, based on current scientific and clinical evidence. The NRN is initially fostering manually assisted Locomotor Training. Magee continues to be a lead site for the NRN for regional trainings, protocol development, database collection and dissemination of evidence-based findings.
At this time, referrals for outpatient therapy using Locomotor Training are being accepted for individuals with any neurologic dysfunction. Anyone referred to this clinic must be evaluated for appropriateness and medical stability prior to initiating this intervention. All standard outpatient therapy procedures will be followed.
