HELP INDIVIDUALS WITH BRAIN AND NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS, STROKE OR SPINAL CORD INJURY WALK AGAIN
A Search for Lokomat Donors, led by:
In 2006, Michael Coss - a loving father of two - was at the height of happiness. But one early morning, a catastrophic car accident on the Coquihalla Highway would change his life forever.
Enduring nearly fatal injuries, and trapped in a comatose state, doctors advised Michael's family to start searching for a long-term care facility to look after him for the rest of his life. Changes of recovery were remote,
Little did these doctors know.
Miraculously awakening after six and a half months, Michael was faced with the challenges of traumatic brain injury that made him unable to eat, talk or walk. Yet, Michael was determined to re-learn and become an active participant in his community again.
With the help of a team of dedicated physiotherapists, and access to the state-of-art walking rehabilitation device Lokomat®, Michael took his first steps 4 years after the accident. Fast-forward to today, and Michael is now walking, assisted only by his cane.

ROAD TO RECOVERY
We are on a mission to bring the best rehabilitation therapy to people like Michael.
Through Project Lokomat, our goal is to raise more than $500,000 by 2021 for state-of-the-art Lokomat® robot-assisted physiological gait rehabilitation therapy for Fraser Valley individuals with neurological injuries.
For persons with traumatic and acquired neurological disorders, spinal injuries or individuals recovering from stroke, the Lokomat® offers the opportunity to optimize recovery and experience the ability to walk again.

Meet The People We Are Doing It For
Bringing a Lokomat® to Fraser Valley represents a
significant investment for our community.
We can't do it without the support of donors.
Project Lokomat has raised over $170,000 through public and private donations. The Lokomat machine costs $500,000 (CAD), and Neuromotion has used the funds raised to date as a deposit to bring the Lokomat into the Surrey Neuromotion clinic. Now we need your support to ensure the Lokomat stays in Surrey and helps those who need it most.
The Project Lokomat fundraising continues - to help children and adults regain their independence, and reduce their long-term financial supports through increased mobility.
The 2020 Project Lokomat goal is $100,000Cdn.
