Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Quality Outcomes
If you or someone you love has experienced a spinal cord injury, you may know that such injuries are highly complex, often impairing movement and sensation and requiring individualized, specialized treatment. So the rehabilitation facility you choose must have a proven record of successful rehabilitation quality outcomes and access to the most innovative technologies available.
Those quality outcomes are exactly what we offer at The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) — the only Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Care System as designated by the U.S. government to develop breakthrough SCI treatments.
RIC treated more than 500 inpatients with spinal cord injury last year alone. Moreover, our patients come from around the world because we can handle the most complex and most fragile patient circumstances. And we provide care for an even greater number of patients with spinal cord injury treated in our outpatient and day rehabilitation programs. Our clinical research sets new standards for the field of spinal cord care all over the world, including developing and being the first institution in the world to offer state-of-the-art interventions such as the Lokomat®, a robot-assisted walking treatment.
The most innovative treatments and sophisticated technologies are matched by our primary concern for our patients: 98% of our spinal cord injury patients gave RIC the highest marks on satisfaction with their treatment — an excellent indicator of quality care.
