Client Assessments

Every six months, we ask our clients to participate in physical and cognitive assessments. This information ensures that you are on the appropriate path toward success and gives you an opportunity to gauge your progress.

Rather than offering a single exercise class, InMotion offers multiple programs designed to complement one another, providing our clients with the best outcomes. Our program is comprised of exercise, expressive movement, creative thinking, education and support.

Every six months, we ask our clients to participate in physical and cognitive assessments. This information ensures that you are on the appropriate path toward success and gives you an opportunity to gauge your progress.

Client assessments are at the core of everything we do at InMotion. Information from your assessment allows you to start a positive conversation with your neurologist/movement disorder specialist and allows you to track your progress.

As a new client, you will participate in a 30-minute program that creates a personalized baseline. With that information, we will create a specialized program for you, focusing on the specific areas that will help you move and feel better. As you participate in classes over the next six months, you will experience changes in:

  • Stability
  • Power
  • Strength
  • Balance
  • Mobility
  • Gait
  • Posture
  • Flexibility, and
  • Mental focus

Since opening our doors in 2015, we have been committed to implementing a rigorous data collection and analysis program using validated measures. To date, our results show that motor performance and quality of life were stable or improved over a 12-month period in the group we studied, illustrating the power of a holistic community-based approach to wellness for people with Parkinson’s disease and their families.

InMotion was invited to present its outcomes at the World Parkinson Congress in Kyoto, Japan, in 2019. The Congress attracted over 3,000 researchers, healthcare providers, non-profit organizations, clients and care partners from more than 60 countries. Those who attended were astounded that a place like InMotion exists and that we were seeing such positive results with our approach.

As a 100 percent donor-supported organization, aggregate assessment results provide support for our approach and drive our conversations with funders, the key to keeping our services free of charge.
