Since 2006, donations to the Children and Adult Mobility Project (C.A.M.P) charity have played a positive role in the lives of many, helping insured soldiers and children and adults with disabilities to regain their mobility and lead fuller lives.
Founded by Kenneth Messier and Patrick Summers in 2006, C.A.M.P. began with its Military Ambulation Project, a program to rehabilitate severely injured soldiers with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries arriving from Iraq and Afghanistan. Using state-of-the-art physical therapy equipment (S.A.M. – the Secure Ambulation Module) developed at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, this innovative treatment program was successfully used at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and the Edward Hines Jr. Veterans Administration Hospital in Chicago, IL., giving patients the ability to stand and walk earlier during their physical rehabilitation treatment. Offering full support and stability while standing, the S.A.M. equipment works for a wide range of individuals, including non-weight bearing, partial, and full weight bearing patients as they go through the recovery process.
