A leading provider of innovative neurological health solutions expands the Heuro™ Program across Canada
SURREY, BC, June 5, 2019 /CNW/ - With the addition of three new clinics, Heuro Canada Inc. announces the expansion of the groundbreaking Heuro™ Program featuring innovative neurotechnology such as Helius Medical Technologies' PoNS Treatment™ and Health Tech Connex's NeuroCatch™ Platform. The new clinics join the current roster of existing clinics authorized to provide the Heuro Program including Neurotherapy Montreal and Surrey Neuroplasticity Clinic.
Since the opening of its first authorized clinic, Neurotherapy Montreal in December 2018, and its second authorized clinic, Surrey Neuroplasticity Clinic in February 2019, Heuro Canada has made it a priority to make the Heuro Program accessible to Canadians from coast-to-coast. Joining the existing list of authorized neurological rehabilitation clinics are Advantage4Athletes Training Center and Therapy Clinic in Markham, Ontario; Synaptic Spinal Cord Injury and Neuro Rehabilitation Centre in Calgary, Alberta; and Apollo South Physical Therapy Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
Heuro Canada aims to improve the quality of life for Canadians experiencing persistent deficits, such as balance and gait, from mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injuries (mmTBIs), with acute treatment and is proud to now offer the Heuro Program at clinics in five of Canada's largest census metropolitan areas.
Rudi van den Broek, Managing Director of Heuro Canada says, "I am proud and excited to launch this nationwide expansion of clinics authorized to bring the innovative Heuro Program closer to more Canadians. With a presence in Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary and Ottawa, over 50% of Canadians will now have direct local access to Heuro's leading innovative treatment experience with the goal of maximizing their recovery from injury and improving their quality of life."
The Heuro Program features PoNS Treatment, an innovative, non-invasive treatment which combines the use of the PoNS™ device with targeted physical therapy. The PoNS device is authorized in Canada for the acute treatment of chronic balance deficit due to mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury, and is to be used in conjunction with physical therapy.
The Heuro Program also features the innovative NeuroCatch™ Platform, which is an objective, rapid neuro-physiological brain function assessment system that is easy-to-use, cost-effective and readily accessible to clinicians across Canada. Used by qualified healthcare professionals and clinical staff in clinics authorized by Heuro, the NeuroCatch™ Platform scan is approximately 6-minutes long and reports on the ABCs of cognitive function (Auditory Sensation, Basic Attention and Cognitive Processing).
With this clinic expansion, Heuro Canada is fulfilling its commitment to create a nationwide network of leading neurorehabilitation clinics which are authorized to bring powerful programs closer to home for those with brain conditions. Heuro Canada plans to certify additional clinics to provide the Heuro Program featuring PoNS Treatment and the Neurocatch Platform in the near future.
