Dr. Kalsi-Ryan’s lab at TRI-LC is called, The Upper Extremity NeuroRestorative and Innovations Lab, which is embedded in the Upper Extremity Clinic at Lyndhurst. This environment offers a research platform where clinicians can study new innovations directly on patients in a real rehabilitation environment. The lab provides a platform for not only the development of new and novel treatment approaches, but also research related to knowledge translation and uptake of new discoveries.

ROCKET FAMILY UPPER EXTREMITY CLINIC - Lyndhurst Centre

Toronto Rehabilitation Institute

 

The Rocket Family Upper Extremity Clinic has opened a second location at TRI-Lyndhurst Centre. Our clinic brings research, best practice and clinicians together to offer evidence based, outcome focused outpatient treatment for people with impairments of the upper extremity due to neurological problems. The Lyndhurst location is a clinical/research partnership to accelerate the development of innovative practices that optimize upper limb functional outcomes for people with neurological conditions.

 

Target Population:

 

We assess and treat individuals who have a neurological condition that has resulted in changes in their upper extremity function.

Services:

Services will be provided by Registered Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists and are, in most cases, covered by third parties such as motor vehicle insurance, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), extended health benefits and/or self-pay.

Rates: All treatment and assessments will be offered at a rate of $120.00/hour. *Some therapies will have an additional charge to the hourly rate.

 

Therapies Offered:

* Functional Electrical Stimulation, including the Myndmove Technology*

* Constraint Induced Movement Therapy

* Activity Based Restorative Therapy

* Peripheral Nerve Somatosensory Stimulation and Massed Practice

* Transcutaneous Spinal Cord Stimulation
