RIVERSIDE NURSING AND REHABILITION CENTER OFFERS THE OmniVRTM VIRTUAL REHABILITATION SYSTEM

 
East Hartford, CT – Riverside announced today that it is pleased to offer the world’s first 3D “virtual rehabilitation” system designed specifically for aging adults and others with physical limitations.
 
What is the OmniVRTM
  • The OmniVRTM is the world’s first 3D “virtual rehabilitation” system designed specifically for aging adults and others with physical limitations.
  • The technology is an important new tool for physical, occupational and speech therapists to help make recovery more fun and rewarding for the patients.
 Passport Rehabilitation 
 
As part of our signature Passport Program this system will be used to assist in the treatment of a variety of conditions including stroke recovery, fall prevention, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular re-education, wheelchair mobility, cognitive impairment and general debility.  Research shows that when virtual reality exercises are combined with traditional therapy techniques, rehabilitation outcomes can exceed outcomes generated by traditional therapies alone.  The skills acquired in virtual rehabilitation can be successfully transferred to real-world functional improvements.
