Second Rocket Clinic opens at Lyndhurst Centre

News Archive
Toronto Rehab’s Rocket Family Upper Extremity Clinics directly connect new research discoveries to patient care in order to greatly benefit individuals who live with paralysis and restriction to movement and function resulting from a stroke or spinal cord injury (SCI).

In addition to the Rocket Clinic at Toronto Rehab’s University Centre, a second clinic was officially announced this week at Toronto Rehab’s Lyndhurst Centre for Spinal Cord injury after first opening its doors this past spring. Both are named to celebrate grateful patient and Toronto Rehab Foundation Board Member, Dr. Howard Rocket, his family, and the many supporters of Rocket Ride for Rehab. 

The goal of both locations is simple: Offer a seamless process for patients to take advantage of proven upper limb therapies as well as experimental options they would not otherwise have access to. All while enabling researchers to trial their studies.

"I can't stress enough how much it has helped my mental health, to be able to see myself making progress," says 51-year-old Reno Candido who became quadriplegic almost two years ago, after slipping and falling on ice.

"One of the things I've always held onto is hope – and the Rocket clinic gives me that."
