Dear JoAnn: I want to personally thank you, and Kim, and the entire qualified staff at Masconomet Healthcare for your incredible and crucial part in my successful rehabilitation. As you know, when I arrived at Masconomet last Spring, I was in pretty bad shape and was unable to walk. I was wheelchair bound having suffered extensive injuries from an automobile accident last January. The worst of the damage was having suffered two broken legs, both upper and lower legs were broken. I now have steel plates in both of my legs, from my hips to my knees and from my knees down to my ankles. I credit my fast moving recuperation and my ability to walk again to the people at Masconomet, particularly to Bill Carey. Under Bill’s care and guidance and his constant pushing me to limits that I didn’t think possible, along with his continued positive motivation, I began to actually take my first steps again a lot sooner than I thought possible. Today, I am back working, driving a new car, and enjoying life to its fullest. This would not be possible without your help and the help and kindness of all of the folks at Masconomet. I will be forever grateful to you all. Thanks a million, Jim S.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Westborough

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital on Flanders Road is among the first in the nation to offer an award-winning therapy that is helping stroke patients regain their ability to walk.

Even if your stroke occurred 10 years ago...you may walk again after Bionic Leg therapy!

The Tibion Bionic Leg is a new robotic device physical therapists use to help stroke patients recover their ability to walk.

Stroke patients who could walk cautiously only with a cane are now walking confidently without one, after Bionic Leg training.  Some who could move only with a wheelchair now walk with a cane. Most Medicare B insured patients qualify for Bionic Leg therapy.

The therapy is offered by Tibion Corp. Read the full story here.
