Our Mobility Program is a charitable neuro-rehabilitation program serving the Roaring Fork Valley communities from Aspen/Snowmass to Glenwood Springs and the I-70 corridor (Grand Junction to Eagle) in Colorado. Our program was created to help individuals who have neurological mobility impairments, regain mobility and walk again.

The program’s goal is to provide ongoing access to cutting edge technologies to enhance neuro-recovery and quality of life. We enable individuals with neurological mobility impairments to exercise in an inclusive health club environment that promotes wellbeing. Such individuals include, but are not exclusive to, spinal cord injury, CP, MS, Parkinson’s or stroke. Each person must meet certain inclusion criteria to use our technologies. We are bridging community and helping individuals in need.

Our program is fully funded through community support and donations to Bridging Bionics Foundation. Join us in celebrating the power of human ingenuity to uplift the human spirit and help our clients regain mobility. Walk with us.

A Winning Combination of Advanced Technologies

Exoskeletons used in combination with the Galileo whole body vibration technology, can reduce the risk of secondary complications as a consequence of paralysis, serve as a preventative healthcare measure, and enhance neuro-recovery.

Our advanced technologies include (but are not limited to):

Rehabilitation and Health Benefits of Exoskeleton Devices

Efficiently using a powered exoskeleton in over-ground ambulation has the potential for physical health benefits and psychosocial benefits associated with weight bearing upright mobility. Functional gain and improved fitness are evidenced by:

  • Greater heart rate and increased oxygen uptake (VO2)
  • Significant increase in joint range of motion specifically ankle dorsi-flexion and hip extension
  • Multi-system impact, meaning many of our bodily systems are stimulated: motor, sensory, nervous, brain, cardiac, and digestive
  • Increased blood flow and circulation in the lower extremities
  • Increased bladder and bowel efficiency and regularity with a decrease in urinary tract infections
  • Reduction in edema or fluid retention
  • Decreased spasticity
  • Improved mental activity and alertness
  • Improved sleep
  • Decreased self-reported neuropathic pain
  • Improved self-reported quality of life, motivation to exercise, and overall health and wellness

PERFORMANCE TRAINING PROGRAM

Bridging Bionics offers a wholistic approach to neuro-recovery. We focus on building the complete athlete through maximizing the potential of the whole body. Professional trainer and physical therapist, Bill Fabrocini, explains how our program incorporates training our clients in the gym to complement the other assets of Bridging Bionics which includes physical therapy, robotic exoskeletons to enable a person to stand upright and walk while fully weight bearing, and whole body vibration. Bridging Bionics Foundation has developed a performance training program with a written curriculum to better understand the techniques used to enhance our clients’ quality of life through improving movement. Using developmental positions from the ground up, we focus on posture, stability and mobility in a controlled environment to enable our clients to transition into the real world.
