A Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital & University of Nebraska-Lincoln collaboration in neuroscience research & rehabilitation.

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s amazing ability to rewire neural pathways, enabling individuals to regain cognitive abilities after a traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury or other disabling neurological condition.

Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital’s Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering has been at the forefront of neuro research for the past decade, exploring this fascinating field and developing new rehabilitation technology and best practices to help patients achieve the very highest levels of independence possible.
Collaborating with research colleagues at the University of Nebraska— Lincoln has helped accelerate the development of new technology, such as the ICARE, an automated elliptical device that is now helping people improve or regain their walking ability.

It’s a powerful partnership, forging the very best of both facilities toward a single purpose — to help individuals achieve their very highest level of performance, whether that is regaining lost cognitive skills from a traumatic brain injury or excelling at the championship level of sports performance.
Today, you will learn much more about the miraculous power of neuroplasticity and the exciting developments in the future of neuroscience.
