Dear Friends and Supporters,

It is so exciting to see the recent groundbreaking results showing unparalleled functional improvements when combining noninvasive spinal neuromodulation and activity-based neurorehabilitation therapy in children with cerebral palsy (CP). It is my hope that such advances can reach as many kids as possible. One day soon, children with CP can say that they “had CP”; by saying this in the past tense. That is why we need to do research on a level that hasn’t been seen before. A diverse, interdisciplinary approach, including active input from the patient - will hold the key to success. Our ethical code is to “transform society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.” We must explore now; not tomorrow; at the highest level possible, what neuromodulation combined with the best, most thorough, practice can do today in the 21st century. As such, Rancho Research Institute (RRI) at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center is supporting the efforts of 

Dr. Reggie Edgerton and Dr. Charles Liu in collaboration with Dr. Susan Hastings, PT, DPT, PCS" and Kirsten Götz-Neumann, PT, President, Observational Gait Instructor Group, to launch an extraordinary project in the Broccoli “Impossible to Possible” Laboratory. This project recognizes the potential of non-invasive intervention strategies that continues to demonstrate recovery of multiple sensory-motor functions that previously have been rarely observed, if ever, in persons diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP). We are now at a time when we can make substantial differences almost immediately. This is a project to help children and adults with CP now, not to hope for something that could be available in 5, 10, or 15 years. The work of Dr. Edgerton and his team reflects the natural progression of decades of innovation at Rancho in prevention, health maintenance, and optimal recovery and restoration for people living with a disability. Your support is essential for realizing the great potential for translating this non-invasive strategy into real-world use and making a significant difference in the lives of kids with CP. Rancho Research Institute (RRI) was established in 1956 to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
