"Real Time Rehab" wins Mayor's Spirit Award
Nov 18, 2009
Jeremy Green's vision was to help those in need of physical therapy in a more personalized manner. Now he has a much bigger backing to help turn that vision into a reality.
Green's company, Real Time Rehab, won the Mayor's Entrepreneurial Spirit Award at a ceremony for the third annual event at the Tulsa Community College Center for Creativity in Oklahoma last night.
By winning the award, Green secured a $30,000 check from SpiritBank and free space in the Tulsa Collaboratorium from Kanbar Properties. He was given the award by Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor and SpiritBank President Ted Cundiff.
Real Time Rehab supplies physical therapy clinics with personalized rehab programs for their patients. The programs are designed by an individual's physical therapist by using a computer application. The results of the program are then burned onto a DVD for the patient. The DVD contains a thorough, customized plan for each patient, including demonstrations of exercises and exact instructions.
Two other companies secured prize money as well.
Part-Time Pros, a job-networking venture designed to connect experienced professionals with part-time and contact employment, won second place and $5,000.
Cog Togs Inc., a social-networking Web site for kids to safely interact with one another and connect, won third place and $2,500.
“In the Spirit Award’s third year we are continuing to see entrepreneurs bring their best ideas forward,” Mayor Taylor told Greater Tulsa Reporter newspapers. “Our winners from the past two years have exemplified entrepreneurial spirit, and we are excited for the 2009 winners to build and expand their businesses in Tulsa.”
