The goal of Burke's inpatient programs is to ensure that each patient makes the maximum recovery possible.
The Burke Medical Research Institute is developing new treatments for disabling diseases and injuries.
Burke offers physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as other outpatient programs.
Burke sponsors support groups, educational events and fitness programs for the community.
In honor of Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital is hosting a Free Hand Cycling Clinic on the Burke campus at 785 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains. Try hand-cycling on a variety of bikes using a closed track on our beautiful grounds.
This event is open to all abilities but participants should have enough upper body strength/movement to move the hand pedals. There will be many experienced bikers and therapists on-hand to assist people with getting on and off the bikes, as well as aid in using the bikes.
This is a great opportunity to get to know the community. Light refreshments are included.
Pre-registration is required. For more information and to register for this free event, contact Alexandra Oudheusden, director of Therapeutic Recreation at 914-597-2248 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you cannot make it to this event, there will be another Hand Cycling Clinic on Sept. 24. There is also the Heels & Wheels 5K Road Race and Walk on Sept. 28 that is open to hand-cyclists and wheelchair users, as well as runners and walkers.
