NextStep Phoenix is Arizona’s premier paralysis recovery center focused on neurological rehabilitation and fitness.
Who We Serve
Individuals living with paralysis including:
Spinal cord injury (SCI)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Cerebral palsy (CP)
And other neurological conditions
What We Offer:
Allows individuals living with paralysis to repetitively practice standing and stepping using body weight support. In a therapy session, the participant is suspended in a harness over a treadmill while specially trained therapists move his or her legs and body to simulate walking. As the person gains function, improvements in sitting, standing, reaching, grasping or walking occur.
Functional Electrical Stimulation (“FES”)
FES applies small electrical pulses to paralyzed muscles to restore or improve their function. FES is used to stimulate peripheral nerves, the "lower motor neurons" that connect the spinal cord to your muscles. FES can be utilized for muscle re-education, functional substitution, spasticity management or general health and wellness benefits.
NextStep’s FES RTI-300 bike is specially designed ergonomic bicycles which a person can use from their wheelchair, using electrical stimulation through electrodes to cycle with and without motor support. This bike can be used for leg cycling. The benefits of FES cycling are numerous—from aerobic conditioning to increased circulation, spasticity management and muscle flexibility.
