ADAPT Advanced Scholarship Fund
Spinal Cord Injury & Neurological Disorders
The ADAPT Advanced Scholarship Fund was created to help clients of ADAPT Advanced with the overwhelming costs incurred with most neurological conditions and spinal cord injuries. When faced with the daunting prospect of rehabilitation expenses, we know how hard the decision to start can be. One of our goals at ADAPT is to help EVERYONE move and with that in mind, we strive to provide every NEW client who comes to ADAPT Advanced some form of financial assistance with their initial evaluation costs.
Life in a wheelchair is one of the most destructive environments the human body can endure. Aside from the negative effects of the injury or condition that created the actual need for the wheelchair, the pure act of sitting for an extended period of time will cause significant deterioration of every function of the human body. The lack of understanding and education with training the population is our number one motivation for this scholarship program. Our evaluation goes far beyond the standard of care in addressing symptoms created by their injury. Often times a range of motion restriction created from the chair itself is a major contributor for a new pain, injury or the lack of physical improvement from the original injury.
The ADAPT Advanced Evaluation is ten hours of extensive physical testing. The results from this evaluation are used to design an exercise program that the client can perform to prevent further deterioration as well as create training programs intended to make physical gains that standard programs are not equipped to produce. Quality of life is something many people take for granted for the majority of their lives. For someone living in this can be a daily struggle. Resources are limited, time is extensive, but the impact is dramatic. We need to create awareness and availability. It becomes our responsibility. Are you ready and willing to increase the quality of life of another? A single evaluation is all it can take to begin that journey.
Change a life. Make a difference. Pay it forward.
