The Institute created its Post Polio Clinic in 1982.
A protocol was established for diagnosing and treating post polio syndrome.
The Institute's goal was to better define the extent of the problem as well as to define those issues that were remediable and those that should be addressed with braces, ambulatory aids, wheelchairs and adaptive equipment designed to enhance function in the presence of increased weakness and disability.
Baseline measures are established in:
Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute
Jennine L. Speier, MD
Minneapolis, Abbott Northwestern Hospital
St. Paul, United Hospital
