    Project Walk question

    So I just mailed out my application and I'm going out there for a week to do a trail but how does that work? WHats all involved in the trail?


    I know they are seeing what phase you should go into and what your weaknesses/strengths are but after that week can you stay longer to do more or do you have to re-fly out there to do another session?


    Also once I submit the papers, do they respond letting me know when a good date is to go out there?

    Thanks

    During the trial week we do exactly what you said, but it is also for you to see if the program is for you. You can stay as long as you want after the trial week, it is up to you. Lisa should call you soon after your application goes in and work with you to see what dates fit best with your schedule.

    Hey man if your going to be living in northern california. You will save a shit load of money by just going to Sci Fit in pleasanton, ca. Its the same concepts as they used to work for project walk. Just something to think about...

    Corey, have your settled on Cali?

    No question you will save even more money here at Sci Step in Southern Ohio.

    I wouldn't be building a house here if I wasn't saving a ton.

    Who else works with insurance? I'm not sure project walk has any relationship
    with Medicare which SCI Step accepts.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    Well when I move to North Cali my main rehab will be SCI-FIT. But I"m visiting a friend who actually lives in carlsbad so it will work out nicely that he lives like 5 miles away from project walk.


    I also saw SCI-STEP offers a free week, hell I might just visit all the rehabs this summer hah

    Imight is staying with me over the summer.

    You get your own place to crash for a week plus free therapy, we'll all go out and start trouble. That's one helluva free vacation.

    Do they have the same equipment that sci-step has [shown here]. And do they bill insurances? thanks.

    Regarding equipment at Project Walk:

    We have a 15000sq ft facility full of equipment and also allows for a lot of open space for our clients to move around in.

    Below is a VERY short list of our equipment from our website:

    http://www.projectwalk.org/center/equipment.htm

    From that list we have these multiples:
    2 RT300s (1 with upper body attachment) +1 that is on loan, so 3 total
    3 EasyStand gliders
    3 PowerPlates
    2 Pilates Reformers
    6 Total Gyms

    Other equipment not on the list:
    Hammer Strength
    -Jammer
    -Hack Squat
    -Iso Lateral Leg Prss
    -Adductor
    -Abductor
    -Hip/Glute
    -Seated Calf
    BodyMasters
    -Double Cable Tower with Leg Extesion and Leg Curl attachments
    -Smith Machine
    -MultiHip
    -Standing Calf
    Jim Davis Proprioceptor (this is a 1lb incremental cable machine with unique attachments)
    SCIFit PRO 1 Upper Body Ergometer
    EFI Upper Body Ergometer
    2 Custom Body Weight support systems
    Multiple standard weight benches, weights, dumbbells, barbells, etc.

    We have received donations from (so we have a lot of this equipment)
    Perfect Fitness
    IronWear Fitness
    BodyBlade
    Leber Fitness



    There is probably more that I can't remember since I am posting from home...


    We do not directly bill insurance, however some of our clients are getting reimbursed from their insurance (see link)

    Hi Cory...I've been to both PW (Caelsbad) and SCI Step (Southern Ohio).

    Bith programs are top notch IMO. As for PW, I intitally went for a 2 week session a few months afer my SCI. Michelle beat the hell out me , but was a very good experience. You won't be dissapointed. I went back for another week about 6 months later. Be aware though, that Southern Cal is pricey...If you have any questions about either program, PM me and I would be glad to answer them.
