    Have you checked out Next Steps Chicago? Web site: .. I think they're not that far from Lansing. They have a good facility and some excellent people there.
    Did you receive therapy there or just hear good things? It would be a lot easier than packin up and movin' to cali. it's like 30 min from my house!

    cdog, I haven't been there, but I do know a bit about them. I have done some therapy at Next Steps NW here in the Seattle area which is loosely affiliated with Next Steps Chicago. The founder of Next Steps NW (who is a friend of mine) was at Project Walk with one of the founders of Next Steps Chicago. Also, Pat Rummerfield is involved with them. He's a walking quad who has recovered remarkably well, and now works with John McDonald at Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore.

    At Next Steps Chicago, they have a Lokomat robotic gait trainer along with other good equipment, and like I said, some very good people. They are worth checking out.
