It’s been an extremely busy summer at neurokinex again as we continue to evolve our team, capabilities and services throughout the UK to redefine the possibilities for the Paralysis Community.
We are today delighted to open the doors for the first time at our brand new Satellite Centre in Bristol. Situated on the Woodlands Estate in Almondsbury, the Bristol centre offers excellent transport links for those in the South West of England and Wales. The centre will be under the leadership of Claire Jones (pictured below) who has been with neurokinex since it began, and offers a wealth of experience in helping clients achieve their rehabilitation and wellness goals.
LIMITED EARLY BIRD OFFER: In celebration of the new launch we are offering a limited early bird offer for all new Bristol clients that wish to take part in our activity-based rehabilitation programme. For more information about the offer, please get the process started by completing our application form here.
As always we are keen to work collaboratively with organisations and individuals in the regions our Satellites are located. If you are aware of any organisations or individuals that would like to get involved in the South West of England or Wales please get in touch by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t believe it has already been 5 months since we launched the new Satellite Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland! Kim and Dorinda have made exceptional progress in establishing the neurokinex activity-based rehabilitation programme for Northern Ireland over the last few months. Not only has Dorinda now joined us as a fully on-boarded member of the team but we are also delighted to introduce Lee Towers, who joins us an assistant trainer for a 12 week period.
As a not-for-profit organisation, working closely with clients and members of the Community is paramount to the success of the Satellite Centres. With this theme in mind, we were delighted to announce that the Antrim centre was chosen to be part of a venture with the Irish Injured Jockey’s Fund and the Irish Rugby Football Union for rehabilitation of injured jockeys and rugby players. As part of this collaborative venture we have just completed the final stages of training and are now an approved Ekso Bionics exoskeleton facility offering clients the opportunity to experience the equipment as part of their activity-based rehabilitation programme.
It’s also incredibly important for us to express our gratitude to the clients in Antrim that have helped out in so many ways including donating or loaning equipment, our accommodating landlords, LMI Foods and a number of other benefactors who without their support would have made the challenge of setting up a centre in Northern Ireland an even bigger one than it was. Our role of honour at the end of this year will no doubt be a long one.
Again, the door for any support or involvement from local organisations and individuals in Northern Ireland is always open. Get in touch by emailing us at email@example.com.
In keeping with the collaborative theme of this newsletter, the team in Watford have been trialling an exciting new piece of gait training equipment – the first installation in the UK. The SportsArt iCARE (pictured below) is an intelligently controlled motorised elliptical trainer allowing our clients to safely take part in repetitive gait training. Whilst working with the equipment extensively over the last few months the training team have been providing feedback on final design features and assisting in the demonstration at roadshows and exhibitions across the UK. We would like the thank SportsArt for this opportunity and their support in helping us help our clients achieve some of their goals with this brilliant piece of equipment.
Collaborative working and working in partnership with other organisations whether they are national or local companies or charities or individuals enables neurokinex to benefit more people across the Community. We have significantly increased our geographical reach in 2015 providing much needed services in Northern Ireland and the South West of England and Wales, but this would not have possible without the altruistic individuals that we have met on our endeavours this year.
Keep tuned in for the next newsletter as we expect some more exciting developments to announce in the Autumn.
