Spinal Cord Injury
United Medical Rehabilitation Hospital has a highly skilled staff and the most advanced robotic therapy to assess and treat Spinal Cord Injuries.

- Helping the patient become as independent as possible in everyday activities such as bathing, eating, dressing, grooming, and wheelchair use.
- Helping the patient learn to accept a new lifestyle.
