Our Equipment

If you walk through the doors of most facilities, the equipment often looks the same. But, turn the corner at The Bluffs, and you are walking into one of the most technologically advanced centers in all of the Midwest. We believe that technology heals. We know technology advances recovery. And because of the equipment that we currently have, we see our patients literally defy gravity.

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill represents the next stride in physical therapy using cutting edge Differential Air Pressure (DAP) Technology, developed by NASA, to unweight the user and reduce the impact of walking or running. With an unsurpassed degree of control, the AlterG protects healing injuries without sacrificing strength and cardiovascular training.

The BTE Eccentron harnesses negative resistance to allow clients to efficiently strengthen and stabilize joint structures for increased stability, balance, and overall performance.

The OmniCycle Elite Motorized Rehabilitation System represents the most advanced therapy cycle technology available. It accommodates post-acute patients who typically may not be able to participate in therapeutic exercises.

HF54 Hands-Free Ultrasound Therapy Unit eliminates the two most common application errors associated with a traditional manual ultrasound treatment that have been shown to reduce the therapeutic effectiveness of ultrasound.

Our Licensed Therapy Team

As a team, we get a sense of fulfillment from being able to assist our patients in their rehabilitation process and seeing them returning to previous functional levels and a more normal way of life. We have one of the best therapy staffs in the area because we develop programs based on individual needs. It’s truly patient-centered treatment.
