When Justin Jeffery, a qualified Biokineticist, saw that there was a desperate need for physical rehabilitation of Traumatic and Acquired Brian Injured people. Unfortunately, the cost of comprehensive neurological rehabilitation is out of reach for many South Africans.
Only those who are on the highest tier of their medical aids could get therapy. The therapy is also ongoing, and very often patients are being discharged from hospital with minimal therapy and left to their own devices.
We saw the need to cater to this group of South Africans who can achieve so much more in their physical rehab. The majority of the injured members have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a result of a motor vehicle accident, sporting accident or personal assault.
They also assist survivors of other acquired brain injuries (ABI) such as a stroke (CVA). All the injured members had led a full life up until they sustained a life changing brain injury, which could include permanent changes to physical, cognitive, emotional and or behavioural processes.
