Adaptive Equipment and Assisted Technology
As part of our continuum of personalized care, our therapists can recommend adaptive equipment—such as wheelchairs, walkers and seating—and assistive technology, such as alternative communication devices. We train patients, family members and caregivers in the use of this equipment.
Inpatient Physical Therapy
While you’re hospitalized, our inpatient rehabilitation team works closely with you and your physician to develop customized treatment plans to meet your specific functional needs and goals for everyday living. Through therapeutic exercise, balance and mobility training, our physical therapists help you restore function, such as walking and stair climbing, and reach your personal rehab goals as quickly as possible. We also collaborate with discharge planners to help you make the transition from the hospital to home or other healthcare facilities, as needed.
