You’ll find Gaitway Neurophysio‘s fully-renovated, custom facility in ANNEX. The ANNEX district aims to provide a space, lifestyle, and culture to support Canada’s next generation of innovators.

Orla brings over 20 years of experience in neuro-rehab. She has worked in the UK, Ireland and now Canada and brings this wealth of knowledge to her practice at Gaitway Neurophysio. 

Orla provides dynamic and innovative programming and research for those with neurological diseases, more specifically, Parkinson’s disease. 

Programs and classes at this new location include:

Other services include physiotherapy, kinesiology, massage therapy, and fitness training. Speech therapy, psychotherapy and dietician services will be added by the end of 2022.  

Recently, Orla has teamed up with co-investigator Anita Saltmarche on a clinical trial using light therapy for the management of Parkinson’s symptoms. The preliminary results of case studies are exciting and noteworthy.

All are welcome to visit Gaitway Neurophysio.

Tenant Spotlight: Hamilton Film Studios

According to Hamilton Economic Development, Hamilton has 9,140 film workers and 901 film businesses, making it the 3rd largest cluster of film businesses in Canada. Hamilton Film Studios (HFS) is more than a part of this industry – they’re essential in keeping the whole system flowing. Partners Zach Zohr, Ken Woychesko, and Graham Purdy define the company as a team of experienced film and television producers whose goal is to support creatives working in Hamilton and to improve its creative industries. Their onsite shop means that the many productions happening in Hamilton have a handy resource for products from top of the line camera bags to gaffer tape. Prior to HFS launching, local productions had to go through the hassle of renting gear from Toronto, or buying, storing, and maintaining their own. Now, gear and location support materials like signs and traffic cones, and tents and heaters, are handily available for rental locally, and at a fair price. Their 5,000 sq ft studio at 400 Wellington Street North is always booked fully booked months in advance, and their space at 64 Hatt Street in Dundas is the dynamic backdrop for a variety of shoots. This comprehensive set of offerings mean HFS is the natural first call for any production happening in Hamilton.
