Concentric Rehabilitation – Marnie’s story
Marnie came to be a client of the Concentric Rehabilitation Centre at just 19 years of age. Marine lost coordination in her limbs following a stroke and was living in a wheelchair. The Concentric team developed a physiotherapy program for Marnie, which included using the specialist LiteGait machine, a device that helps people with hip or knee replacements, or recovering from a stroke, to learn to walk again. Through intense rehabilitation, Marnie is increasing her leg strength and coordination, and can now walk alongside a wall, or with the support of just one therapist. Marnie has big dreams for the future, “My goal is to be able to do things independently, and one day go to the Paralympics”. Marnie’s story is truly inspiring, have a watch of the above video.
