We are very excited for our 3rd Annual Fundraiser and are already blown away by the support we have received from the community. Just take a look below at the companies who have already chosen to support the event, many for several years in a row!!!
If you want to get involved and support the event, please contact Janet at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are currently seeking sponsors and volunteers.
UPDATE: (6/5/2017) VIP is proud to update that the Integra Foundation has also supplied a scholarship for Yi to continue therapy! We are thankful to be supported by a generous community in San Diego who simply wants to help the disabled in San Diego.
VIP is honored to have the support of the Quad Foundation for one of our newest patients, Yi.
Yi is a student at UCSD, working to achieve his PhD in Physics. He dreams to become a teacher after graduation and enjoys being a TA, which he has done for 5 years. Yi is also working on this thesis research and expects to graduate 2019/2020.
In January 2017, Yi suffered a spinal cord injury while skiing. He attended Sharp for acute rehabilitation earlier this year and now has joined VIP for continued therapy. Yi gives his all each and every day at therapy.
The support of the Quad Foundation will make a huge difference to Yi and his family as his parents left their jobs and moved to San Diego to help him recover.
If you would like to support Yi as well, please contact us at email@example.com.
We are proud to welcome our newest scholarship recipient, Irving, to VIP NeuroRehab!
Irving served in the U.S. Army and we are thankful for his years of service. He grew up in Boston, attended Georgetown Law School and became a U.S. Attorney, appointed by President Nixon. He later became District Attorney in Ventura County.
At the age of 67, Irving suffered a stroke and is now experiencing right side paralysis and expressive aphasia. He has come to VIP to gain stability and strength through exercise.
Irving is a hard worker and committed to improving! We look forward to seeing his progress.
VIP is honored to have received a $5,000 grant from the David C. Copley Foundation
early this month for the VIP Scholarship Program.
The David C. Copley Foundation's mission to carry on the Copley family’s legacy of giving by funding nonprofit organizations making a difference in the areas of human services, military and military veterans, youth development, medical and medical research, especially those programs and services improving the life or opportunities of the under-served in the San Diego area, aligns closely to what VIP is all about and we are proud to have their support!
If would also like to support this program or are in need of a scholarship,
please visit VIP Scholarship Program for an application.
VIP is proud to be one of the only locations in Southern California to offer the Lokomat by Hocoma to patients. This piece of equipment is the most advanced technology in gait training and is by far our patients favorite thing to do at VIP!
It offers customized, consistent therapy with an exoskeleton system that can be individually adjusted for each patient. Patients at any level can get the benefits of being upright and walking. Patients find that while the Lokomat is great for gait training, it also increases circulation, reduces tightness and strengthens muscles.
At VIP, the Lokomat is constantly in use! Our staff are experts at setting up each individual patient quickly and effectively so that patients can receive the most therapy possible. The Lokomat can be used for both pediatric and adult patients.
Call us to schedule a tour today at 858-689-9643 and see how the Lokomat can help you!
A few months ago our VIP Staff were given the opportunity to have a trial period with the Rifton TRAM and they quickly found that it was a huge benefit to many of our patients. You may remember this video of our President, David, walking with the TRAM during our trial too.
The TRAM is strong enough to help lift patients from a seated position to a stand and the wide frame is great for individuals in the early phases of gait training.
Mike and Beth Charbonnet saw the amazing work being done with the TRAM and generously donated funds to purchase this equipment. VIP will have a TRAM available for patients full time.
We are thankful for the support of the Charbonnet's and know this TRAM will be a great asset for our VIP Family!
