Intrepid Spirit Centers Use tWall for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

 

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel have been diagnosed with some level of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in the past decade, many as a result of combat. TBI and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) can have long-term and sometimes severe effects on service members’ lives, affecting their ability to work, manage basic living tasks, and interact with others – even with their own families. Depression and more tragic consequences, including suicide, can result. Proper and immediate diagnosis and early treatment are crucial to addressing this vital need among America’s military personnel.

In 2010, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund launched its current effort: building Intrepid Spirit Centers to serve as satellites to NICoE to extend care to the home base of many of the troops suffering the effects of TBI and PTS.

Exergame was lucky to be a part of these Intrepid Spirit Centers by implementing the tWall.  Benefits of the tWall Include: Social Fitness, Focus Training, Cognitive Performance, Reaction training, Vision training, MAP training for Physical and Mental awareness, Executive function training, Coordination and Balance, Physical endurance, Visually appealing design.

Each Intrepid Spirit Center is approximately 25,000 square feet and costs about $14 million to build and equip. The centers are designed around the interdisciplinary model of care developed at NICoE, which brings all disciplines together under one roof, and provides a comprehensive means of delivering treatment. Patients with TBI can manifest many different symptoms, including physical indicators, such as headaches, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, irritability, mood swings, vision, hearing and balance issues. They may also exhibit mental health symptoms, such as verbal or physical outbursts, impulsive behavior, poor judgment, inflexibility, depression or anxiety.
