Tudor Oaks Rehab Center Utilizing New Virtual Rehabilitation System

Posted on: April 14, 2016

The Tudor Oaks Frances Henry Health and Rehab Center is now home to the OmniVR™ Virtual Rehabilitation System.

The OmniVR™ is the first virtual rehabilitation system developed to accommodate the needs of medically complex patients and older adults. This easy-to-use technology uses an advanced 3D camera and specialized computer software to track the patient’s precise movements and allow them to interact in a virtual world. The system includes a variety of “skilled” exercise programs for physical, occupational and speech therapy applications. Research indicates that patients enjoy performing virtual exercises and activities, therefore motivating them to exercise harder and longer. As a result, virtual rehabilitation treatment outcomes can equal or even exceed those achieved with traditional therapeutic exercise alone.

Highlights of the OmniVR™ System include:

• An advanced 3D camera captures the patient’s movements automatically, and eliminates the need for hand controllers, mats or special platforms.

• Specialized computer software creates a “real-time” interactive environment providing positive feedback throughout the exercise session for increased patient motivation and repetitions.

• Offers six “skilled” exercise categories with multiple difficulty levels for balance, gait training, wheelchair mobility, seated exercises, upper extremity exercises and cognitive activities.

There is no question that finding the best place for a family member or a friend can be a stressful and difficult task. Starting the search is often the result of a change in health status or a crisis situation that ultimately affects the safety of your loved one. Let the professionals at Tudor Oaks help walk you through the process step-by-step to ensure you create a plan that makes sense for you and your family. Then you can be the son, daughter or spouse once again.
