Serving as a Guide for the Nexus of Rehabilitation and Exercise

Welcome to CONTINUUM Lab—a resource and research center dedicated to empowering people with physical disabilities through science-based knowledge and training. We deliver curated content and coaching support to promote a lifestyle of exercise, whether that’s integrating individuals back into normal life after rehabilitation or pursuing sports at the elite level. We are there from day one when many individuals are having to start life over due to disability or a new health condition. Our purpose is to provide the resources and tools to optimize an individual’s experience—leaving them feeling empowered and capable.
