NASA Astronaut Clayton Anderson shared the concept of "technology transfer" with Nebraska technology leaders on March 4, 2010. This Madonna event showcased advanced rehabilitation devices and research being conducted in the hospital's Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering. Anderson discussed how research at Madonna will positively impact the lives of people with disabilities in a similar way to the every day technology that has come out of the space program.

The goal of the evening was to connect with innovative thinkers and explore ideas for the future of rehabilitation and health care. Guests visited six stations featuring current technology at Madonna, including a functional electrical stimulation hand unit, fMRI brain mapping, balance control on the Proprio 4000, computer access with minimal head movement using the AccuPoint head tracker, the Intelligently Controlled Assistive Rehabilitation Elliptical (ICARE) Training System and the first public viewing of the First Hope initiative room.

Clayton Anderson welcomed guests from the LokomatĀ® robotic gait trainer, which is used to help patients regain walking function. Guests had the opportunity to personally interact with the equipment and research projects, learning first hand how technology is used to help Madonna patients become as independent as possible through specialized rehabilitation. The featured equipment and projects were all made possible through donations to Madonna's capital campaign or through private and federal grants.
