Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis serves as a regional center for specialty medical care for children. The new Robotic Rehabilitation Center at Riley provides innovative treatment for children with cerebral palsy and other movement disorders. This center is the first of its kind in Indiana and uses interactive robots and computer games to help re-program children’s brains and improve their motor functions. The generous donation of the first two pieces of equipment from the Robots to the Rescue organization, helped make this state-of-the-art center a reality for children with special needs in Indiana and the Midwest region.
Physical and occupational therapies have long been considered the mainstay treatments for cerebral palsy, but increasingly, therapists, patients and families are turning to robotic therapy for help. While robotic therapy is well documented in adults, the Robotic Rehabilitation Center at Riley Hospital hopes to lead the way in state-of-the-art care for children with special needs. The support provided by Robots to the Rescue has been a critical contributor to this goal.

Words can't express how thankful I am to R2R! Not only has their hard work and dedication in bringing the Lokomats to Riley Hospital benefited my child tremendously but their continued support and concern for Kala and kids like her at Riley Hospital speaks volumes of the character of this organization and the people behind it. R2R is second to none and will always have my deepest gratitude and support.

Many thanks to Margaret Goldsmith, Pam Sokow, and Riley Hospital!!!

My daughter participates in the Lokomat Program at Riley Hospital. Her life has improved noticeably as a result of the therapy she receives. Kala has ambulatory difficulties but the therapy has improved her ability to walk without the support or assistance. We feel fortunate to the be recipients of R2R's generousity.

Robots to the Rescue has been so important to me and my family, I can not thank Pam enough for everything she's done to help us. I contacted her (R2R) because my 4 year old nephew from Brazil had suffered a stroke last year. He's been doing physical therapy since then, and his arm shows slow recovery (from being paralyzed). We read an article in a Brazilian magazine showing the great benefits of the robotic therapy, and I found Robot to the REscue and Pam, who was able to introduce me to a doctor who has a program in Brazil. My nephew will begin robotic therapy as part of the research.
I am so looking forward to seeing the benefits.

The Great!

I wish more peolpe in the world could benefit from this organization. There is no much information out there about stroke in children, I am sure it would help so many families around the world.
