Walk It Off Visits Project Walk Orlando!

As many of you know, our SCI Recovery Trainers, Taylor, Alyssa and Rebecca, went down to Orlando for the last week of January to visit our friends at Project Walk! If you are unaware of Walk It Off’s origin, Heather and Kevin went down to Project Walk in 2009 shortly after Kevin’s accident. While at Project Walk, they were amazed by the innovative physical therapy Kevin received that was focused specifically on spinal cord injury recovery. After their time at Project Walk, Heather and Kevin decided this special type of therapy needed to be available in Canada and that’s how Walk It Off was born. Over the years, Walk It Off has maintained a special relationship with Project Walk Orlando. Heather and Kevin have continued to visit Project Walk Orlando over the years to experience their therapy techniques; not to mention getting a small reprieve from the Canadian winters in sunny Orlando. This year, the SCI Recovery Trainers were the lucky ones heading down to Project Walk Orlando to experience and learn first hand all about the exciting sessions happening there!

Walk It Off is fortunate to possess the only Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Ergometer north of Toronto. This specialized bike allows us to provide EMS in a way that allows the individual to pedal with their feet or cycle with their arms using their own muscle contractions.

Nervous System Activation Technique (NSAT) for Spinal Cord Injuries

NSAT consists of performing a variety of gross motor exercises that isolate muscles of the arms, legs and core. The SCI Recovery Trainer performs these exercises passively by moving the limbs through their natural ranges of motion.
