Better Technology. Better Healthcare.
RISE Healthcare Group (RHG) is a dynamic collection of physical therapy practices and outpatient rehabilitation clinics throughout Southern California.
We combine first-in-class clinical care with cutting-edge technology to provide innovative treatment protocols that result in better patient outcomes. Together, with our affiliate partners, we are on a mission to reimagine what patient care can be.
Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL)
When a person wants to move, the signal to control this movement begins in the brain and then travels along a path to the targeted muscle(s). In some people, however, this pathway has been weakened, damaged or broken from disease, injury or dysfunction (therefore limiting or preventing the desired muscular movement). Through sensors placed on the skin, the HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) can actually detect these faint signals. Once an intention for movement is detected, motors inside the HAL are activated, helping the wearer to complete the action. This creates a positive feedback loop which can strengthen, reinforce and even rebuild neural pathways.
The FDA has deemed the HAL device to be the only exoskeleton to improve function in patients who have experienced Stroke, Spinal Cord Injuries and Progressive Neuromuscular Disorders. In addition, clinically and academically, we have seen proven positive results treating patients with Parkinson’s Disease, Traumatic Brain Injuries, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Combined with our unique approach to physical therapy, the HAL can slow the progression of many neuromuscular disorders and increase patient strength, independence, confidence, and quality of life.
RISE Healthcare Group
At the Cutting-Edge of Medicine and Technology
RISE Healthcare Group (RHG) was established in 2021 as a partnership between Japanese technology company Cyberdyne Inc., and a collection of Southern California outpatient Physical Therapy clinics under the common ownership of Dr. Navid Hannanvash. The flagship company within these practices is known as RISE Physical Therapy and is located in the greater San Diego area.
This partnership was born out of a desire to go beyond the conventional treatment options for neuromuscular diseases by combining an established 1-on-1 treatment model of RISE Physical Therapy with Cyberdyne’s Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) device. The HAL device is a one-of-a-kind blend of technology and rehabilitation used to read a patient’s intent for movement and help facilitate that action via improved neuromuscular connections.
Listen to a few of our patients share their stories and describe how HAL therapy is making a positive impact in their daily lives.
"The HAL treatment does something that nothing else can do."
"When I first started going to RISE, I was in a wheelchair. Now, I am walking and standing."
Traumatic Brain Injury
"My goal is to get back to school next year. Just gain some independence back."
The team at RISE Healthcare Group brings decades of knowledge and experience in areas such as physical therapy, rehabilitation, clinical care, healthcare technology, medical device development, and more.
