Advanced Technology Meets Rehabilitation

How advanced rehabilitation technologies help patient recovery

Our physician-led multidisciplinary care team assesses patients and develops personalized treatment plans to meet patient needs. Combining the expert training of our therapists with leading edge robotics and rehabilitation technologies, we work to improve the skills that enable patients to return to daily life and the activities they enjoy.

Discover how these advanced rehabilitation technologies help patients recover in our hospital.

Advanced Robotics to Aid in Patient Recovery

    • Bioness Vector: A robotic overhead body weight support harness mounted to a ceiling track system. It automatically holds a patient upright helping improve how they walk and balance themselves while eliminating the risk of falls and injuries during therapy.
    • Bioness H200: A wireless hand rehabilitation system. It uses FES to help patients with weak or paralyzed arms regain skills needed for reaching and grasping. FES mimics electrical brain signals and helps reactivate impaired muscles.
    • Bioness L300 Go: A compact, wireless foot and thigh rehabilitation system that uses FES to stimulate specific muscles that help patients walk more naturally with improved speed and balance. By providing stimulation precisely when and where needed, the device helps patients left their feet to navigate stairs and uneven surfaces.
    • Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS): A large touch screen digital display with programmed exercises to improve the physical, visual and cognitive (thinking) abilities of patients.
    • C-Arm for Swallow Studies: Radiology equipment used to perform onsite swallowing evaluations.
    • Fiberoptic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES): A procedure used to assess swallowing through the use of a thin, flexible scope that is passed through the nose to the back of the throat.
    • VitalStim: Therapy that uses low-frequency electrical current, passing through external electrodes on the neck, to stimulate inactive swallowing muscles.
    • XSensor Pressure Mapping: A device that uses electronic sensors to measure the amount of pressure between a patient’s body and a surface, such as a bed or wheelchair seat. Pressure mapping systems help clinicians select an appropriate wheelchair cushion to help protect a patient from damaging their skin.
In addition to these advanced robotics and technologies, our hospital is equipped with a standard roster of rehabilitation equipment to support patients on their recovery journey.
