Restoring Independence

DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan

ExoskeletonWhen your life is turned upside down by an unexpected accident, injury or illness, the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) has the experience, tools and expertise to help. Here’s the story of Sandy Laufle, an avid and experienced cyclist. Sandy was enjoying a 60-mile bike ride with friends when he suddenly collided with another rider and hit the pavement. Sandy was rushed to a nearby hospital and diagnosed with a brain injury, broken right shoulder and ribs. DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan's dedicated team of doctors, nurses and therapists specializing in brain injury rehabilitation helped Sandy relearn how to walk, talk and improve his cognitive skills. Today, Sandy is able to ride a three-wheel cycle and has returned to his job as a college campus police officer.
