Rehab Center

Motion Project to open –

The Natalie Barnhard Center for Activity-Based Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation and Recovery

If you can dream it... Natalie Barnhard has envisioned a state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility here in Buffalo, New York to help the spinal cord injured in this area for the last 10 years. Now we are thrilled to announce that the Center is slated to be completed by late spring 2020.

The Motion Project Center will be an activity-based, intense program tailored specically for those who have suffered a spinal cord injury to reach a whole body recovery — physical and emotional. It will house specialized equipment, assistive technology, space for counseling and family education, adaptive bathrooms and other specialized amenities.

Motion Project Center will collaborate with the University of Buffalo to offer:

• Support for the everyday demand of life for people with a spinal cord injury

• Activity-based therapy.


Activity-based therapy focuses on life-long wellness, building as much strength and function as possible to:

• Promote neuromuscular recovery where there is potential

• Help maintain physical readiness for neural recovery

• Improve quality of life

• Enhance lifelong health and wellness and hope for a brighter future
