Healing Innovations Inc announces the successful completion of the first pilot for the new Rise&Walk InClinic technology at Shepherd Center in Atlanta. The pilot included the technology’s different use cases, and gathered session data including clinician and patient feedback. 

“The Rise&Walk has helped our team facilitate upright lower-extremity motor training with fewer staff than is typically required of some other locomotor-related training activities, while also allowing us to objectively track user progress. We are excited to continue to partner with Healing Innovations to further support advances in rehabilitation technology.”

— Rebecca Washburn, MS, manager of Beyond Therapy

Beyond Therapy is an intensive outpatient neurological rehabilitation program that integrates the disciplines of physical therapy and exercise physiology at Shepherd Center.

“The Rise&Walk enables our team to create intensive and engaging training sessions that are in keeping with the aims and objectives of our program. Individuals have enjoyed using the Rise&Walk, and we see unique opportunities for integrating the technology into the existing repertoire of motor training and conditioning devices we have to offer.”

— Nicholas Evans, MHS, ACSM CEP, lead exercise physiologist in Beyond Therapy

The Rise&Walk InClinic is a robotic neurorehabilitation technology that targets muscle groups important for walking and facilitates locomotor-related movements to help a wide range of patients recovering from neurological injuries. The sit-and-stand device is designed to replicate up to three different therapy modalities, giving clinicians more flexibility in a therapy session, a media release from Healing Innovations Inc explains.

This pilot was an important first step in the introduction of this technology to the rehabilitation community. The Beyond Therapy team has an incredibly innovative spirit that made them the perfect partner in this initiative.”

— Luke Benda, Chief Executive Officer of Healing Innovations, based in Nashville, Tenn

Healing Innovations will release the Rise&Walk InClinic technology with additional rehabilitation providers in 2021, per the release.
