Rehabilitation Enhanced by Advanced Technology

rehabilitation-enhanced-by-advanced-technologyOver the past decade, rapid advancements in rehabilitative technology have dramatically expanded treatment options for our patients. Northwestern Medicine Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital’s expert clinicians have been at the forefront of these advances helping to guide the clinical application of best practices. Additionally, Marianjoy is one of a select few clinical facilities in the nation to offer such a wide range of the latest technology featuring virtual reality, robotics and biofeedback–technology, including Armeo® Power, Ekso GT™ Bionic Exoskeleton, ZeroG® Gait and Balance Training System, and more. We are also one of five facilities in the nation and the only facility in Illinois designated as a Center of Excellence by Ekso Bionics.

In this episode, Marianjoy’s Anita Kou, MD, a double board-certified subspecialist practicing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Spinal Cord Injury Medicine and fellowship-trained in Spinal Cord Medicine, and medical director of the Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program, and Stephanie Salentine, MS OTR/L, MOL, manager of rehabilitation services, explain how our leading-edge technologies are integrated into patient treatment plans, used for research and ultimately contributing to improved patient outcomes.
