At Bridging Bionics Foundation (BBF), we believe all individuals with neurologic mobility impairments can live better through the use of advanced technology. We see a world using technology to optimize function and improve life for all individuals challenged with mobility impairments. This simple vision drives us to serve people through our unique programs.
Our mission is to provide access to bionic rehabilitation technology for all individuals challenged with neurological mobility impairments. We serve individuals with neurological mobility impairments resulting from injury or disease, including: spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, Cerebral Palsy, and stroke. We work every day to be a bridge between advanced technology and those in need.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
- “What an uplifting experience! Seeing myself walk again was such an empowering act! It was a pure self-esteem booster. Not only it filled my heart with joy, I also regained faith in the value of daily training on the way to neuro-recovery.” – Reinfried B.
- “I have been more active since starting Bridging Bionics and I feel a sense of motivation I didn’t have before. Bridging Bionics has helped me not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well…it gives me hope even through the rough times. There are not enough words to explain how grateful I am for this program!” – Cameron F.
- “The founders and volunteers of Bridging Bionics have hearts of gold and are changing the lives of so many in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond and for that we can’t thank you enough.” – Sunny M.
- “The best neurological and gait training I’ve experienced in the 20 years of paralysis. Never thought I’d enjoy walking again. Now I DREAM of the places I want to WALK and I BELIEVE it WILL HAPPEN!! 2000 steps to a mile. Thank you to Bridging Bionics, therapists and volunteers, you’re making my life better.” – Leah P.
WHY CREATE A FOUNDATION?
Exoskeleton technology has the power to turn a life around: that is, to turn “You will never walk again” into “We’ll show you how.”
Exoskeletons are a game changer. In a market void of the affirmation “you will walk again” exoskeletons can provide a new answer. With nearly 6 million people in the US living with paralysis the likelihood of knowing someone who is living with paralysis is a reality for each of us.
We are in a new era where science is augmenting human potential like never before. The applications for exoskeletons in this realm are vast. We have the opportunity to advance human mobility beyond wheelchairs and unpowered orthotics, and make a meaningful impact to the quality of life for those individuals.
Our foundation is committed to being the spark behind a movement to help those who are paralyzed walk again. We are asking you to join us in this movement; turning no into yes, one step at a time.
