Early mobilization for acute stroke and acquired brain injury patients helps reduce frustration and improve their socialization with family and caregivers. Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, the Rehabilitation Stroke Team has two new specialized wheelchairs that support these clients more comfortably and safely, and help promote quicker progress getting into and out of bed independently.
