|The Movement Performance and Locomotor Recovery Clinic at the Frazier Rehab Institute is an outpatient clinic department in which you can receive physical and occupational therapy. It is a collaboration between UofL Health and the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center. Outpatient clinic services are an integral part of the translational research model. Building upon the strong foundation of scientific innovations from our KSCIRC research labs, our therapy team is able to translate research findings directly into new cutting-edge clinical therapies.
Research informs our understanding of how we can optimize the design of activity-based Interventions and the use of stimulation techniques such as Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation, spinal cord Epidural Stimulation, and spinal cord Transcutaneous Stimulation to regain locomotor and upper extremity function while improving quality-of-life for individuals with spinal cord injuries.
Clinical services are individualized, which allows our team of physical therapists, occupational therapists, and activity based technicians to design a rehabilitation program that is personalized in order to maximize functional improvement and increase the ability to perform needed daily tasks. Translating scientific findings to the clinic is central to our mission to support the continuum of care and the cure for paralysis.
Activity-based Intervention research enables the discovery of new treatments, improvement of current therapies, and refinement of policies that affect adults with impaired locomotor and upper extremity function. Research studies rely on volunteers with the specific medical conditions for which we seek advances. Volunteers like you enable our success and gives us all hope for a better future.
