Although the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation became a national philanthropy in 1972 and has operated on a national scale since then, it also has continued funding a limited number of local institutions and projects in the New Brunswick area and throughout New Jersey. It does so in part to honor the legacy of its founder, and in part to recognize the special responsibilities to the communities and the state in which it is located.This grant provides continued support toward the patient care equipment needs of the RWJ Jr. Rehabilitation Institute. The funds will enable the Institute to purchase a computerized diagnostic system (Neurocom) which has: (1) the ability to identify and assess motor and sensory deficits that impair the patient's ability to maintain normal balance; and (2) the ability to define the specific therapeutic treatment regimens for helping the patient compensate for his/her balance disorder. The equipment will enable the Institute to serve as a regional center for assessment, treatment, and ongoing monitoring for the some 60,000 people in Central New Jersey who have balance problems.
