Minnesota's NeuroRecovery Network member

ABLE, the Activity-Based Locomotor Exercise program, is an innovative approach for people living with paralysis or neurological conditions. It uses emerging research about the benefits of activating muscles and nerves to promote a greater degree of neuro recovery. Most participants experience improvements in health, fitness, strength and quality of life.  

The ABLE program's non-traditional approach utilizes revolutionary locomotor training, Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES), the Giger MD therapy device and guided fitness activities to maximize recovery by challenging muscles below the level of injury.

If you are prepared to work hard, and looking forward to being fitter and healthier, let our expert team design your personalized program. A customized program is recommended for each person, based on an individual assessment. When appropriate and feasible, the ABLE High Intensity Program often provides the best results.
