Mission Gait was launched to empower the physical rehabilitation community, through education and research. We envision a world in which physical therapists everywhere can acquire the knowledge and skills to help patients with complex gait disabilities learn to move again with confidence.
Mission Gait seeks to change forever how rehabilitation is provided to patients with complex gait disabilities. We can achieve self-sustaining change by 2036, and the roadmap to get there is as unique, simple, and effective as the model it promotes.
Our mission is to make outpatient physical and occupational therapy possible for amputees needing financial support, while promoting wellness in body, mind and spirit.
Multiple studies show that amputees who receive physical and occupational therapy within the first year of the amputation do much better in life and are more apt to wear their prosthesis more often, and for longer periods each day. They ambulate from place-to-place more independently, often without an assistive device.
In addition, their self-esteem is higher and this can improve overall quality of life.
