Our Vision

Bridging Bionics Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization. We believe all individuals with neurological mobility impairments deserve to have access to affordable, consistent and ongoing physical therapy, that utilizes advanced technologies to improve their quality of life. We see a world using technology to optimize function and improve life for all individuals challenged with neurological mobility impairments. This simple vision drives us to serve people through our unique programs.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide access to affordable, consistent, and ongoing physical therapy and advanced rehabilitation technology for all individuals challenged with neurological mobility impairments. Our advanced technologies are intended to assist with augmenting ambulatory functions for individuals with neurological conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders or diseases. We work every day to be a bridge between advanced technology and those in need.

Bridging Bionics Foundation is an IRS designated 501(c)(3) public charity: EIN# 46-2182977, based out of Basalt, near Aspen, Colorado.

Our Programs

Paralysis can be socially isolating and is financially burdensome. Lifetime costs for spinal cord injuries can total over $2.5 million per individual. In most cases, insurance only covers 50-65% of these costs.

We are the only mobility program of its kind.

What makes the Bridging Bionics Foundation unique?

We provide

  • Affordable access to consistent and ongoing physical therapy and personal training at no cost to low cost.
  • Access to advanced technologies including whole-body vibration systems and a range of bionic exoskeleton suits.
  • Rehabilitation in a health club setting that promotes inclusivity and wellbeing.
  • Exercise as medicine. While we believe that neuro-recovery is possible, maintaining neurological health and wellness are essential to optimizing the quality of life. This leads to an increase in emotional and social wellbeing, a reduction in secondary complications associated with paralysis, and a reduction in re-hospitalizations after sustaining a traumatic neurological injury or disease.
  • Wholistic program approach, which includes physical therapy, whole-body vibration, exoskeleton usage, and a performance training program.
  • Mental health and wellness program provides a bridge to psychological and emotional support around loss of mobility via professional counseling services in partnership with Pathfinders Aspen.
