Transforming Lives Beyond Limits

At Synaptic, we believe the only limits are the ones you set for yourself. Our mission is to take clients beyond their wheelchairs and mobility devices, providing high-intensity therapy sessions that help them achieve significant functional milestones. Whether the goal is to gain more independence, manage illness progression, or take the first steps in recovery, we support our clients’ determination and abilities.

As a national leader in innovative technology and rehabilitative equipment, Synaptic offers therapeutic solutions that enhance hand function, improve strength and range of motion, boost cardiovascular health, increase bone density, manage pain, reduce spasms, and ultimately improve the quality of life. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes:

FES Bike
Standing Frames
Synaptic’s activity-based therapy is rooted in neuro-protection, neuro-recovery, and neuroplasticity principles. Research shows that high-intensity exercise can reorganize the central nervous system, increase gray matter, and reconnect neural pathways. This approach fosters brain and body reconnection through functional movements, leading to increased independence, mobility, and quality of life.

Our unique training focuses on treating below the level of injury. Studies indicate that nerves below a spinal cord injury maintain their functional properties and respond to stimuli. High-intensity activity has a protective effect on the nervous system, preventing the progression of neurological conditions.

Derived from the Greek word meaning “to join together,” Synaptic embodies a collaborative healthcare approach. Our team of neuro-supportive practitioners promotes healing, recovery, and functional improvement through:

Activity-Based Therapy
Physical Therapy
Occupational Therapy
Mental Health and Wellness Counseling
With your support, Synaptic will continue to be a progressive outpatient center in Alberta, offering recovery and hope to thousands living with neurological conditions. Your donation provides access to rehabilitation, enabling individuals to heal, rebuild, and live life to its fullest potential.

We invite you to gift therapy sessions to a family member, friend, or client in need, at $105 for an hour of rehabilitation. Monthly gifts ensure that Synaptic can continue providing care, education, and technology to the community. Annual or one-time donations help us purchase life-changing rehabilitative equipment and deliver vital treatments.

Be the difference. Make a donation today.
