Life-Changing Adaptive Therapy

CSUN’s Center of Achievement through Adapted Physical Activity featuring the Abbott and Linda Brown Western Center for Adaptive Aquatic Therapy is world renowned for its academic and community service and it is in immediate need of technological upgrades and new equipment — needs that will allow students to study, make advances and better the lives of the community it services.

The Brown Center's reputation was the reason Eunbi Lee enrolled at CSUN. She came from South Korea, where she earned her undergraduate degree from Kookmin University in Seoul.

Her undergraduate advisor told her that she could earn practical experience by enrolling in CSUN’s kinesiology graduate program. At the Brown Center, she works with students and community members — adults and children — with Parkinson’s disease, neurological disorders, spinal injuries and people who suffered a stroke among other health conditions. While learning, she is also making the lives of others better.

However, due to outdated technology at the Brown Center, Lee has had to seek alternative equipment to analyze data. She has had to deal with the frustration of losing data because of tech malfunctions at the center.

The Brown Center has about 20 graduate students working per semester, servicing nearly 450 clients annually and improving the quality of life for families in the Northridge community. Most graduate students go on to doctorate programs and become entrepreneurs or faculty members, widening the radius of impact made by the Brown Center.

We want to stay on the cutting edge of research. Through continuous research we can help benefit our clients and enhance the programs that we provide to them. We can also give students like Eunbi Lee the best tools to work efficiently and create the next breakthroughs in physical therapy.
