The 1998 Gathering of ERGYS Enthusiasts:
A Meeting of Friends in New York City
Fairborn, Ohio - On Saturday, September 26, 1998, Therapeutic Alliances Inc. (TAI)
will hold its third annual Gathering of ERGYS Enthusiasts. The Mount Sinai Medical
Center Department of Rehabilitation Medicine will co-host the event. This years
"Gathering" will take place as an evening reception in New York City at Mt.
Sinais Guggenheim Pavilion.
The Gathering is based on the ERGYS and REGYS family of products for exercising the
otherwise immobile legs of persons with spinal cord injuries (SCI). ERGYS riders,
clinicians, and other interested parties are encouraged to attend the free event. Experts
in the field will be on hand to discuss the technology one on one with attendees.
The Mt. Sinai Medical Center has offered REGYS and ERGYS therapy to its patients since
the inception of this technology in 1984. The location of this world-renowned hospital
brings the Gathering closer to the many ERGYS and REGYS centers in the Northeast and
allows TAI to pay tribute to Dr. Kristjan Ragnarsson and Susan Pollack Feldman for their
research and clinical contributions to this technology.
In addition to the Saturday reception, Therapeutic Alliances will also take the
opportunity to form its board of directors. According to TAI president James Schorey,
"Although TAI is a privately held corporation, we have benefited from the advice of a
number of bright and influential people since the founding of our company 6 years ago. The
formation of the board is our opportunity to formally recognize their support."
