Electrical Stimulation Bicycles

Electrical Stimulation BicycleThese specialized bikes stimulate the muscles of the lower or upper limbs so you can use your own strength to power the bicycle. Riding an FES bike simulates the physical activity that a person normally experiences during an average day. Cycling for one hour is equivalent to walking 6,000 steps.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulators

NEUROMUSCULAR ELECTRICAL STIMULATORSTherapists use this device on specific muscle groups to help you perform tasks such as trunk training and lower extremities movement.FES works by having a computer send electrical messages to a person’s muscle, causing it to contract in a way that can be used for purposeful movement, such as grasping an object. Electrical stimulation is often used in combination with other equipment and our traditional hands-on therapy.

Ekso Robotic Exoskeleton

Robotic ExsoskeletonThis wearable robotic suit is designed to help you get back on your feet and supports re-learning correct step patterns and weight shifting. Click here to learn more about the exoskeleton.

Therastride

Relearn walking with this system that supports some or all of your weight while the therapists move your lower limbs over a treadmill through the proper gait pattern.

AMADEO AR7

The AMADEO, a robotic-and-computer-assisted theraepy device for your fingers and hands, simulates the natural grasping motion and executes automated movement sequences that can be achieved both actively and passively depending on your treatment needs.

Armeo Spring System

Armeo Spring SystemThis system embraces the whole arm, from shoulder to hand, and counterbalances an adjustable part of the weight of the patient's arm in order to enhance residual function and neuromuscular control. Various self-initiated repetitive therapies help increase your range of motion and selective control.

Armeo Boom System

Boom SystemAn overhead sling suspension system facilitates upper extremity functional movements. With an adjustable amount of arm weight support, you can perform self-directed, free movement exercises of the impaired arm in a large 3D workspace.

Bioness L300 Go

L300 Go is a functional electrical stimulation (FES) system capable of producing measurable mobility improvements for patients with foot drop and/or knee instability or thigh weakness.

BTS G-Walk

A wireless system of sensors that allows for an objective functional gait analysis that provides accurate, objective and quantitative data to help us improve your treatment and motor capabilities.

ForeSite SS Tablet Wireless Seat System

wireless seat and tablet systemThis system is used in the Seating Clinic to measure body surface pressures, a key factor in the development of pressure ulcers, in order to help improve your current seating system performance or evaluate a new seating system that will best meet your needs.

G-EO System

G EO SystemPeople with lower extremity weakness or paralysis can recover mobility and independence in daily living by performing realistic simulations of activities like over-ground walking and going up and down stairs. When using the G-EO, therapists can provide real-time adjustments in a safe and controlled environment to maximize the benefits of the equipment for you.

Litegait

Supportive partial weight bearing environment that provides postural stability and biomechanically correct posture while helping patients improve and retrain their gait patterns.

Meditouch 3D Tutor

3D TutorWith a wearable wireless motion feedback device and dedicated physical therapy rehabilitation software, the Meditouch 3D provides functional rehabilitation of the upper and lower extremities. The bio-mechanical data gathered from the device allows your therapist to objectively evaluate any further physical therapy treatment needs.

Meditouch Hand Tutor

Hand TutorThis glove and software system gives hand biofeedback and challenging games to motivate patients to continue intensive, repetitive fine motor finger and wrist exercises.

MediTouch Arm Tutor

Arm TutorThe arm brace and dedicated rehabilitation software is designed for elbow and shoulder exercises in the form of challenging games. The system provides precise feedback on your exercise performance and improvement.

MediTouch Leg Tutor

Leg TutorA leg brace and dedicated rehabilitation software allow you to perform weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing activities designed as challenging games so you can practice knee and hip movement. The system gives precise feedback on your exercise performance and improvement.

Myomo MyoPro

MyoProThis myoelectric elbow/wrist/hand-powered brace supports an impaired hand and arm while also enabling it to move again. You use your own muscle signals to control your arm movements. When you try to bend your arm, or open and close your hand, precision sensors in the brace detect the weak muscle signals, which activates motors to move the hand and arm in the desired directions. You completely control your own hand and arm, but the brace amplifies the weak muscle signal to help move the limb.

Standing gliders

Stand and work on trunk balance while also learning how to bear weight through the lower extremities and improve cardiovascular endurance.

SaeboMAS dynamic mobile arm support system

SAEBOMAS DYNAMIC MOBILE ARM SUPPORT SYSTEMThis zero-gravity, upper extremity device is specifically designed to facilitate and challenge the weakened shoulder and elbow during functional tasks and exercise drills. The mobile arm support can help improve decreased upper extremity function, improve your motor skills and muscle coordination and support re-learning of specific movements.

Tobii PCEye Gaze System

Eye Gaze DeviceThis device replaces a mouse for those who have upper extremity weakness that makes using a computer mouse difficult. You learn how to quickly and accurately control the computer using only your eyes.

Vectra Neo

Vectra Neo UnitOffering multiple therapies on one machine, the Vectra Neo has five plug-and-play modules, four channel electrical stimulation, ultrasound, EMG biofeedback, and EMG-triggered stimulation and laser options.

Vibration Plate

Vibration PlateUtilizing Whole Body Vibration (WBV) technology, this equipment imitates mechanical strains on the bone that occur during physical activity. The vibration plate is mounted to a supported stander for people who may have trouble standing on it safely and independently. WBV can temporarily suppress spasticity and potentially improve walking function by increasing step length and walking speed.

Virtual Reality System

Virtual Reality SystemYou can participate in various activities from simply looking at a landscape to actively participating in games that engage you and encourage a variety of muscle movements.

Vmax Encore Metaboic Cart

Metabolic CartThe cart provides cardiopulmonary stress testing and indirect calorimetry testing for both children and adults in our wellness and nutrition programs.
