The journey from disaster to miracle began in January of 2002. Richard Ayres, beloved husband, new father, and adored son, brother, and uncle was struck head-on by a drunk driver. Suffering from severe head trauma, Rich was in a coma and paralyzed. His family refused to “let him go”, as the doctors advised, and began the process of research and investigation that led them to the Quadriciser®.
The Quadriciser moves all four of your limbs and simulates reciprocal movements of walking while lying in the supine position. This cross-crawl pattern stimulates the brain and improves muscle function. This unique device along with intense one on one therapeutic exercise provided the basis for Rich’s recovery and ongoing progress. Rich’s dedication, as well as his family’s desire to see him thrive, started a process of recovery that could only be defined as miraculous.
