  • MossRehab to Provide Bike Helmets & Helmet Fittings to Children at Franklin Institute Community Night March 20

    Published: 03/12/2013


     MossRehab—the renowned physical and cognitive rehabilitation center (and member of Einstein Healthcare Network)and the Pennsylvania Brain Injury Association—will be providing free bicycle helmets and helmet fittings to children and their parents at the Franklin Institute’s Community Night On Wednesday, March 20, from 5:00 pm till 8:00 pm.

    For Community Night, the Franklin Institute opens its doors to the public for free, allowing access to persons who may not be able to afford the cost of regular admission. The title of the March 20 Community Night is: What’s in Your Brain? In addition to providing helmets and fittings, the brain safety activities for children and adults include learning about how the brain works, what happens to a brain after a brain injury, and the importance of prevention. Visitors will also have a chance to meet with “Dr. Brain Dude” and hold a brain, to see service dogs in action, and to meet with MossRehab staff.

    “We’re proud to provide bicycle helmets and to show children and their parents how to wear them properly,” said Thomas Watanabe, MD, Clinical Director, Drucker Brain Injury Center at MossRehab. “With the arrival of warm weather, children are pulling out their bicycles, scooters, and skateboards. While these activities are a lot of fun, there is the risk of brain injuries through falls or collisions. A helmet is a very effective and inexpensive form of protection, but only if it fits correctly. We want to help children have a safe, fun summer and MossRehab believes prevention is the best medicine!”
