Your Program Makes A Difference
Inpatient rehabilitation care is also known as hospital-level, or acute, rehabilitation care. This sophisticated level of care is not available in other settings, such as nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers or extended care centers. Exercise and treatment are important, but the process of relearning work skills, cooking, driving and writing means the patient will have what it takes to get back to his or her life again. It's that environment of "hope" where ordinary desires become extraordinary realizations.

We have the latest technology:
Allows individuals to comfortably walk in a secure environment free of falls.
Neuro-orthotic and rehabilitation system that provides electrical currents to stimulate nerves and muscles to increase hand function, prevent muscle loss, re-educate muscles, increase blood circulation, reduce muscle spasms, and increase or maintain hand range of motion.
Neuro-orthotic and rehabilitation system that provides electrical currents to stimulate nerves and muscles to assist with a more natural walking pattern, reduce muscle spasms, reduce muscle loss, maintain or improve range of motion, and increase local blood circulation; used to improve independence, functional mobility, and safety in the treatment of foot drop.
Patients work on their balance and strength through the various Wii games that help develop a person's sense of balance, and build muscle strength and stamina. The Wii also provides feedback and tracks the patient's progress.
These recumbent cross strainers help patients get a total-body exercise that has low impact on their joints.
Used to assess the motor and sensory aspects of the swallow to precisely guide the dietary and behavioral management of patients with swallowing problems to decrease the risk of aspiration pneumonia. It also allows evaluation of extra-esophageal manifestations of gastro-esophageal reflux (Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR)) including asthma, hoarseness, laryngitis, globus and aspiration.
Allows individuals suffering from neurological impairments such as stroke the ability to incorporate their hand functionally in therapy and at home by supporting the weakened wrist, hand, and fingers. The SaeboFlex is a custom fabricated orthosis that is non-electrically based and is purely mechanical.
This system is a safe, non-invasive, external, electrical stimulation therapy used to help treat patients with difficulty swallowing or dysphagia. VitalStim unites the power of electrical stimulation with the benefits of swallowing exercises to accelerate muscle strengthening, restore swallowing function, and help the brain remap the swallow. Research has demonstrated that combining these therapies results in better outcomes than using either one alone.
