Giving Patients a Second Chance

Enhancing mobility after spinal cord injuries

Thanks to our community of donors, Providence St. Jude Center of Rehabilitation and Wellness (CRW) has acquired the Aretech ZeroG® Gait and Balance System. This robotic support system with advanced fall protection will be installed in Spring 2022 to improve outcomes for patients suffering from a spinal cord injury (SCI) through intense rehabilitation.

ZeroG offers fall recovery training for SCI individuals who are primary wheelchair users. Patients wear a harness that connects to an overhead track, allowing for functional training, such as sit-to-stand maneuvers, gait and balance training, and stair training, all within a controlled environment. The new ZeroG system will help improve patient outcomes and safeguard our rehabilitation therapists while helping patients.

Widely regarded as one of the best in the country and the only comprehensive outpatient neurological rehabilitation program in Orange County, the CRW is uniquely qualified to meet the needs of inpatients and outpatients who have suffered a brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury or other neurological disorders. Since 1972, Providence St. Jude and its CRW programs have been continually certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities for its comprehensive continuum of care.

Philanthropic support of the ZeroG technology is furthering the rehabilitation program’s vision for growth, benefitting patients within our SCI program. With the addition of the ZeroG system, Providence St. Jude’s CRW would be the Orange County community’s only comprehensive facility to offer this advanced technology.

Located only six miles from the medical center, the CRW is a 6,000-square-foot facility equipped with three therapeutic indoor pools, a full spectrum gym and wellness community center led by a team of by specialized physical and occupational therapists, neuropsychologists and certified rehabilitation nurses.
