ABOUT

THE PROGRAM

The science behind Neurological Reengineering helps the brain to relocate, activate, and control muscle fibers. Hands-on techniques reestablish and create pathways to increase neural stimulus and motor control. Neurological Reengineering is offered exclusively at BARWIS Performance Centers where, to date, over 90 individuals in the program have regained movement and function.

OUR MISSION

We are a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help those with spinal cord, neurological, and related disorders regain movement and mobility by providing access to the BARWIS Neurological Reengineering elite recovery program via training scholarships.

WHAT WE DO

Most of us take simple movements and mobility for granted as we go about our days. The individuals in our program are tireless fighters , often in the face of incredible odds and rapidly depleting resources/insurance coverage. We are called to help, to continue to give hope and the Power to Move.

The First Step Foundation help provide access to the cutting-edge recovery program, Neurological Reengineering. Our board aims to grow the program, extend its reach, and impact as many lives as we can.

Since its inception in 2014, the First Step Foundation has provided over $330,000 in training scholarships and over $60,000 in specialized equipment for the Neurological Reengineering Program.
