The Power to Change Lives

By Articles, Company
In this Inspiring Our Shared World video, we talk to David Penna, an Exercise Physiologist at Moving With Hope (MWH). MWH is a leading adaptive fitness, learning, and rehabilitation center based in Shelton, Connecticut providing essential rehab, exercise, and skills training to people living with physical disabilities. Whether it’s spinal cord injuries or brain injuries, they use activity-based rehabilitation to help individuals improve their quality of life. Their mission aligns with SportsArt’s commitment to improving performance—not just for elite athletes, but for everyone driven to live their best life. That’s why we were excited to partner with MWH, providing them with rehabilitation equipment including our ICARE. And we’re inspired by the results that David shares. What we also love about MWH is how they don’t just focus on the physical aspect of rehabilitation. They offer a virtual reality job training program that puts them in real-life situations and gives them the real-world skills necessary to re-enter the job market. Check out the video to learn more about how they’re bringing hope, making a positive impact and changing lives for the better. Learn more about Moving With Hope

The 17th Annual ICAA Forum Think Tank

By Articles, Company
Download the Summary We were once again honored to be part of the latest Think Tank hosted by the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA). At this forum, the discussion centered around an emerging business model: Today’s innovative senior living organizations are moving toward a wellness lifestyle, with options for care. While this is ultimately a better and healthier choice for the active aging community, it poses challenges in terms of costs. Think Tank participants worked together to create actionable strategies for funding this new wellness model. This is a topic near and dear to the heart of SportsArt. Our focus has always been on serving the health and wellbeing of our users, our partners and our community. Being part of this forum enabled us to put our values to work in tangible ways by contributing ideas and insights that truly inspire performance for our shared world. Based on the wellness philosophy of a purposeful and engaged life for all residents, customers and staff members, SportsArt along with our forum colleagues identified 11 funding sources, 21 wellness metrics and five categories of Key Performance Indicators.
