Zubizarreta House Provides Accessible Housing for Spinal Cord Patients
Our Ohio spinal cord injury attorneys do more than just handle your case – we make sure you have the resources you need to resume your life. Because of that, we at Tittle & Perlmuter were excited to learn that MetroHealth Hospital in Cleveland has opened a new treatment center for patients with spinal cord injuries called the Zubizarreta House – a one of the kind facility that allows for out of town spinal cord patients to rehab without staying in a hotel. Instead, the goal is to make you feel at home!
Spinal Cord Research
The research related treatments that guests at the Zubizarreta House are participating in is for Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). The treatment works by implanting the device in a person’s chest or abdomen, which then stimulates paralyzed muscles. This is done in hopes to increase mobility for spinal cord patients.
