Strong Hands and Open Hearts
Equipment, expertise and compassion are essential for therapy to be successful. Our programs have been created for specific reasons by therapists who know how to incorporate technology and the right equipment into the healing process. We are high tech and high touch.
We incorporate the arm and leg cycles, shoulder arch, exercise balls, adaptive equipment for dressing, bathing, and self-feeding. We also focus on sensory activities, fine motor coordination, and cognition/problem solving activities. The success of our program comes from the combination of our equipment, our knowledge and 1:1 training.
Some of our equipment includes:
e-Stim is a form of treatment that uses electrical currents to create muscle contraction which increases strength, prevents atrophy, and reduces pain.
Hydrocollator is a stationary or mobile stainless-steel thermostatically controlled liquid heating device designed to heat bentonite-filled packs in water up to 160 degrees where the packs will be removed and wrapped in several layers of toweling and applied to the affected body area of a patient to relieve acute pain or relax certain muscle groups.
The goal of our dementia training program is “to do with instead of for” — this occurs through use of ADLs and activities to promote function. When we lose the ability to engage in meaningful activities, we lose an important part of our self. This can lead to serious consequences such as decreased mood, agitation, anxiety, greater level of disorientation.
