The Center for Human Performance Optimization is dedicated to creating an inviting atmosphere to support and improve mobility in children and adolescents with physical disabilities. Our goal is to help young people discover things they never knew they were capable of through skill development and exercise. We do this by bringing together cutting-edge researchers, dedicated physical therapists and the most advanced motion technology and equipment to create a unique hybrid in neuroscience care. This collaboration allows us to develop new and improved therapeutic interventions so that every individual can have a breakthrough in optimizing their performance.
The 2,300 square foot, barrier-free facility, is designed to feel more like a state-of-the-art sport training facility rather than a medical clinic or research center. The dynamic support systems, split belt and curved treadmills, therapeutic training equipment and open area exploration systems with fall prevention are just a few of the pieces of equipment you will find in the Center to encourage and enhance mobility.
