Founded as a charity in 2012

In partnership with forward-thinking entrepreneurs, Synaptic Spinal Cord Injury and Neurological Rehabilitation Centre was created to fill a gap for services for people living with spinal cord injuries, stroke, tutors, and progressive neurological conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease. 

Located in a 6, 000 square-foot space constructed using the principles of Universal Design, Synaptic Health showcases an environment without limitations; enabling clients to explore their physical potential in a space tailored to enhance ability, independence and function.
