On July 3rd, over 75 attendees came out to the grand opening of Ontario’s first Heuro™ clinic at Advantage 4 Athletes (A4A). The event was held at the A4A facility, giving guests an opportunity to see the Heuro™ treatment rooms and take a tour of the space. Mayor Frank Scarpitti and his fellow dignitaries were in attendance to celebrate the milestone along with healthcare professionals including occupational therapists, physiotherapists and chiropractors among many others. Heuro™ Canada and A4A were also grateful for the support from Helius and HealthTech Connex staff.
Dr. Ryan Scott, Advantage 4 Athlete Clinic Director, kicked off the evening. With a moving speech, he noted where he gets his motivation:
“My father is the reason I started on this journey,” said Dr. Scott, “When I saw firsthand how a neurological condition could so dramatically affect not just a person, but also the lives of all their loved ones, I felt compelled to make a difference.”
As the evening continued, attendees learned more about the capabilities and science behind the Heuro™ Programs. Robin Norris shared insight into the NeuroCatch Platform and the importance of establishing brain vital signs. He was followed by Dr. Harry Kovelman, who delved deeper into the science behind the treatment program.
Acting Managing Director of Heuro™ Canada, Glen Antonuk, explained why the clinic opening is so important to those who have experienced a mild-to-moderate brain injury:
“We do this for people like Katherine Webb, whose life was changed dramatically after a car crash several years ago. Balance issues, dizziness and headaches – Katherine’s life became a challenge. Everything changed when she became one of the first to undergo the 5-week clinical trial. Now completing the 14-week treatment program with Heuro™ Canada, she has already made significant improvements in her physical and cognitive functioning.”
A4A was presented a scroll of congratulations from Mayor Scarpitti of Markham and is proud to be recognized by the city and its dignitaries.
