How We Heal
With CP patients, we focus on mobility, communication, self-care and education. Throughout our Innovation Centers and Ability Labs, doctors, therapists and scientists work together, toward your best outcomes.
We have 350 clinical studies under way — some specifically CP-related. For example, we’re testing novel stretching and assistive devices (software, toys, splints), as well as exploring CP at the cell level. We offer you access to the world’s most advanced research that can directly impact your outcome.
