Syn.ap.tic is a 6200 sq. ft. facility located in downtown Calgary. Syn.ap.tic co-exists in the same building as Uthrive which enables clients to have direct access to physical therapy, chiropractic, massage therapy and acupuncture services. Syn.ap.tic also aims to expand its services to include a dietician, psychologist and a physician.
The facility is fully equipped with adaptive equipment to accommodate a wide spectrum of physical limitations. Syn.ap.tic is currently the
only centre in Canada to be using the Therastride as an integrated part of its rehabilitation program. Although other gait trainers exist in various
institutions, nothing has been available for public use until now.
Therastride is a body weight-supported treadmill that enables people with varying physical limitations to be upright in a weight loaded position. This progressive technology allows the opportunity to correct and improve walking patterns for people with minor to severe deviations in gait.
