Reading Health Rehabilitation Hospital incorporates the latest
evidenced-based tools to strengthen our already exceptional
rehabilitation programs. Our therapists, with certification in areas of
technological advancements and adaptive equipment, provide optimal
utilization of items such as communications systems, positioning and
wheelchair adaptations. Some of our advanced technologies include:
Mild electrical stimulation to improve hand and foot muscle
Electrical stimulation for patients with difficulty swallowing.
A roving robot that allows consulting clinicians to remotely
examine and speak with patients and listen to breath and heart
SMART Balance Master®: Interactive, functional
training exercises using visual biofeedback, coupled with
sensitive, real-time monitoring of movement trains patients to
achieve greater balance control faster.
LiteGait® System: A gait training device that
simultaneously controls weight bearing, posture, and balance
over a treadmill or over ground to enhance motor return and
recovery of ambulation skills.
ReoGo® Provides robotic movement assistance to
support rehabilitation therapies and utilizes interactive 3-D
graphics to present exercise patterns and performance feedback
to enhance the return of motor function.
AquaGaiter®: An underwater exercise system that
combines traditional treadmill training with the natural
properties of water (buoyancy, resistance, and heat) for
ambulation in a reduced gravity environment.
Guldmann Body Weight Support Systems: Allow
therapists to promote normal gait sequencing in patients who
lack trunk control or lower body strength to support their
weight, promoting return of motor and ambulation skills.
GameBike: Recumbent bicycle linked to a video
game system for visual feedback during therapeutic exercise.
MOTOmed Movement Therapy System: Motor and
software assistance gently moves and loosens patient's arms and
legs from the comfort of a wheelchair or bed.
