Why We Care: Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute and ABLE

Every year, E.A. Sween Company and its product lines are thrilled to support organizations that do so much good work in their communities. In 2020, we’re introducing you to them, and hope you’ll find them as inspirational as we do!

Earlier this year, we talked about the Animal Humane Society. Now we’d like to tell you about Courage Kenny and its ABLE (Activity-Based Locomotor Exercise) program.

The work being done at Courage Kenny is nothing short of amazing and is absolutely life-changing. The many areas Courage Kenny works in include sports and orthopedic injuries, brain and spinal cord injuries, cancer and stroke survivors, neuromuscular conditions, chronic pain, children and young adults on the autism spectrum and people who have been disabled since birth.

The services they provide to these people include inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, health and wellness services, assisting with assistive technology and even job services. The ABLE program is an intensive fitness approach for people with paralysis or other neurological conditions. Using state-of-the-art fitness equipment, ABLE works with patients to improve and increase their physical stability and strength, along with heart and lung health, bone density and regulation of blood pressure.

“At E.A. Sween, we’re proud to support the kind of work that enables people to live to their full potential,” said Tom H. Sween, E.A. Sween’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Courage Kenny’s ABLE program is an innovative example of the work being done. They really make a difference in their patients’ quality of life.”

Learn more about ABLE through Rob’s story. Rob sustained a spinal cord injury in a diving accident that left him in a wheelchair with little free mobility. But through ABLE, he began to rebuild his muscles and ability to control and direct his body:

Courage Kenny’s ABLE program is one of only six Community Fitness and Wellness facilities of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation’s NeuroRecovery Network. Every day, these talented professionals work hard for the best outcomes for their patients. And that’s why E.A. Sween cares about Courage Kenny.
