BurnAlong, a health and wellness and social motivation platform, and Shepherd Center are collaborating to create and distribute specialty content for people with multiple sclerosis and other neuromuscular diseases worldwide via the BurnAlong online platform.
Through this partnership, clinicians, therapists and wellness professionals at Atlanta-based Shepherd Center will provide video classes aimed at people with the neurological conditions that Shepherd treats. This content will be uploaded and hosted on BurnAlong’s platform and will be available to Shepherd patients along with BurnAlong users and their families.
In addition, BurnAlong and Shepherd will work together on clinical studies evaluating the outcomes of the programming and partnership to help improve care, according to a media release from BurnAlong.
“At Shepherd Center, part of our mission is to conduct research and develop innovative solutions and treatments to help people with a temporary or permanent disability caused by injury or disease.
“One way we provide support to patients is through specialty classes that will aid in rehabilitation once a patient, and their family, have returned home. Our partnership with BurnAlong will extend Shepherd’s expertise to support the independence and wellness of people with injuries and disabilities across the globe.”
— Dr. Deborah Backus, PT, PhD, FACRM, at Shepherd Center
“BurnAlong is committed to offering programming that is diverse and accessible regardless of ability, race, chronic condition, locality, age, family status and gender. Moreover, we are committed to supporting whole families so that wellness journeys can be experienced by everyone in the home, together on one platform.
“Our partnership with Shepherd Center will open up a whole new category of specialized classes to BurnAlong customers and people globally so that we can support the wellness of people with spinal cord injuries and neuromuscular disorders.”
— Daniel Freedman, co-CEO of BurnAlong
