New Castle, Pennsylvania - Cora Outpatient Rehabilitation Center will host an EMG Biofeedback Informational Seminar on May 20, 1999, in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania.  Bernard S. Brucker, Ph.D., will present his EMG biofeedback treatment method which is world-renowned for improving the quality of life for thousands of individuals suffering from head trauma, stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and other neurological conditions.

Dr. Brucker, the Director of Biofeedback for the University of Miami School of Medicine, is a psychologist who has dedicated his entire professional career to improving the quality of life for people with physical disabilities. His laboratory at the University of Miami / Jackson Memorial Medical Center can be reached at (305) 585-6351.

Although not every person can benefit from EMG Biofeedback, Dr. Brucker's program has been documented to help patients gain the ability to sit independently, perform activities of daily living, and even walk. His training technique, based on "operant conditioning," helps the brain "reconnect" to the paralyzed area of the body.

Cora - New Castle, formerly Med/Aid, is home of the Mid-Atlantic Center for the "Brucker Method."

Following Dr. Brucker's presentation, James Schorey, president of Therapeutic Alliances Inc., will discuss the benefits of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). FES is embodied in the ERGYS Rehabilitation System which is available at the Cora - New Castle Outpatient Center. The ERGYS allows patients with little or no voluntary lower body control to pedal a stationary leg-cycle ergometer by way of electrical stimulus-induced contractions of the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteal muscles of the legs.
