Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center has been awarded an $8,000 grant through the Capital Region Community Foundation toward the purchase of advanced vision therapy equipment to further broaden its comprehensive brain injury rehabilitation services.

The Vision Coach Interactive Light Board is a versatile, interactive training aid that promotes and enhances numerous visual and neuromotor abilities, many of which are commonly associated with brain injury.  Unique to the area, this equipment will allow therapists at Origami to offer Vision Therapy services not available elsewhere in Mid-Michigan.

“Vision therapy is a unique and essential service that we provide as part of the brain injury rehabilitation process” said Tammy Hannah, Executive Director of Origami. “Utilizing the most advanced vision therapy equipment available in our region will further enhance our success in this critical area” Hannah continued.

Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center is a nonprofit organization operating in partnership with the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Peckham, Inc. Located on a 35-acre wooded campus just south of Michigan State University, the facility offers a comprehensive and individualized continuum of care for adults who have sustained mild to severe brain injury, from outpatient and community based programs to transitional and long-term residential care.  With a focus on utilizing the broadest spectrum of resources available to return clients to active and productive lives in the local community, Origami leverages the expertise of its partner organizations to consistently produce effective outcomes.
