A friend sent me to this website when we were talking about my cousin's issues with cerebral palsy. I'm hoping that this great new technology and therapy can be brought to the Arizona area soon. This charity is doing an awesome job in helping parents, therapist an the rehabilitation community to realize the potencial of robotic therapy for children and stroke victims.

I love this charity. I work in the healthcare industry and am intrigued on how robotic therapy helps adult stroke victims and are delighted that the technology is now being used for children. I am a donor and think the site is helpful to therapists trying to locate facilities with the technology Keep up the good work.

I have volunteered for the past 2 years to Robots to the Rescue and feel honored each year they ask me back. When I was first asked to help, I felt honored to be a part of such a great event that is selfless to all those individuals who put this event together.
Knowing that this event is
designed to raise money for kids with gross and fine motor skill deficits, specifically for kids with cerebral palsy (CP), makes a special education teacher and those who work with kids with CP, warm at heart
I am a special education teacher who has worked with students with multiple disabilities from autism to cerebral palsy for the past eight years. I work at a middle school and I see students who have had early intervention to only public school support. Public schools are limited to the amount of support they can offer an individual with a disability. Robots to the Rescue offer support to families who have children with cerebral palsy at a very young age. When a child has independence in their gross motor skills, like walking and running, and fine motor skills, like writing or brushing their teeth, it also increases their cognitive development.
Robots to the Rescue does not discriminate upon your income, socio-economic status or race. They solely are there to raise money so anyone that is applicable is able to benefit from the Robots.

I have personally seen the benefits from using these robots through the different children that have used them over the past few years. You can see their progress and importance the robots have played in their life. This gives me hope for the future of physical therapy that can be offered for individuals who are struggling with walking, running or even walking up the stairs.

I would use other children with a variety of disabilities, other than CP. Although, if you use children with different disabilities then the data collected may be skewed. There may be too many variables.

I work in the IT industry and was introduced to this site by a friend because of my interest in using technology to improve the lives of children with special needs. I have a friend who has a child with a severe case of cerebral palsy. Robots to the Rescue is using technology to give her parents hope.

I don't see anything I would change at this point. These professionals are using technology to improve the lives of many - kuddos!

A wonderful organization which is spreading the word to therapists and families as to where they can find pediatric robotic therapy. They do an excellent job in providing updates which is very encouraging to parents. With their enthusiasm and effort they increase the awareness of modern rehabilitation by using cutting edge technology.

I have a friend who has a child with cerebral palsy who introduced me to the site. I have been following some of the stories and progress being made. I have been involved with several non-profits including Glendale Health Kids and Aids Service center. Robots appears to be a top flight organization.

In my 45 years in this field (first as a mother, then as a professional), I have NEVER been as excited or as optimistic for children with cerebral palsy as I have been since the opening of the Riley Robotic Therapy Center. Thanks to Robots to the Rescue's effort to raise funds for this center, I've watched children use their affected arm all the time and I've watch one little girl walk the equivalent of 10 football fields while having FUN doing therapy!

I volunteered to photograph the Robots to the Rescue event in September of 2010. I was amazed by the children and found so much satisfaction in helping the organization. I had the opportunity to meet the kids and was aaw-struck by the progress of the R2R ambassador Kala from last year. Speaking to her mother, Kala would not have the opportunities that are opening to her without the help of R2R.

Help R2R with more funding. I would like to see it reach out across the country and effect more lives in such a positive way. R2R might be supporting the children but their reach is to everyone each child interacts with.

A dear friend has a child with CP and she told me about the amazing new therapy her child was recieving as a result of robotic therapy at Riley Hospital. My friend is so grateful that her child helped to walk on her own because of the equipment that was purchased by Robots to the Rescue for Riley. I hope my small contribution will help to provide other children with the same opportunity.
