The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) has been recognized as the “#1 Rehabilitation Hospital in America” since 1991 by U.S. News & World Report and it has a worldwide reputation for rehabilitation and physical medicine. It is affiliated to Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine.
The RIC is also a world leader in bionics and has produced devices, designed by inhouse physicians and engineers, that work by detecting the movements of a chest muscle that has been rewired to the stumps of nerves that once went to a patient’s now-missing limb. Mitchell (pictured), who lives in Ellicott City, is the fourth person — and first woman — to receive a “bionic” arm, which allows her to control parts of the device by her thoughts alone.
