“Find Your Strength” – Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital

BPI worked with Spaulding’s Adaptive Sports Program, which is one of the most comprehensive in the nation, to capture individuals’ adaptive physical recovery.

In collaboration with Forge Worldwide, BPI produced several inspirational, multiscreen film installations for the patients and employees of the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital located in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The films follow the patients’ journeys through the program and how the staff works and motivates each person to achieve the goal of participating in a sport through adaptation. 

Stories of motivation include: a rower, paralyzed from the waist down, sculling the Charles River; a paraplegic cyclist using his hands to propel the bike; a drowning victim learning to dance ballet; a former college football player learning to use his prosthesis to throw a football once again, and a victim of the Boston Marathon Bombing who relearned skiing on a prosthetic leg.
