Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit has two gym areas with many state-of-the-art, advanced technologies such as virtual motion and robotic-assisted systems to aid in accelerating recovery of motor and cognitive skills.
ZeroG gait and balance training system by Aretech is a robotic overground body-weight support system. Patients wear a harness that connects to the ZeroG as it tracks their movements from above. ZeroG prevents falls and uses dynamic body-weight support to partially unweight the patient as they practice walking, balance exercises, sit-to-stand, getting off the floor, stairs, and many other activities in the rehabilitation process. With the interactive balance programs and games, using the ZeroG is fun, yet challenges the patients both physically and cognitively.
The Sanet Vision Integrator (SVI) is used to improve visual abilities for a wide range of patients with visually related learning problems, amblyopia and traumatic brain injury. It is effective when working with acquired brain injury patients who experience visual field loss, visual-spatial neglect and writing problems, as well as patients with rhythm, reading, and math problems. Lastly, it is indicated for use to enhance body awareness, balance, and stability during dynamic UE movements. The SVI instrument actually “speaks,” instructing the patient to respond to verbal commands, improving auditory-visual integration and memory.
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is a well-established rehabilitation technique which uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves evoking muscle contractions and patterned muscle activity. FES creates patterned movement in the arms, legs and trunk. FES enables muscles to work and perform activities even though the muscles may be weak or paralyzed through neurological disease or injury.
Cincinnati Children’s has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for our inpatient rehabilitation and pediatric specialty care programs since 1997, for our brain injury program since 2015, and for our cancer and pain programs since 2018. We are the first in the world to receive an accreditation in pediatric cancer rehabilitation and only the second to receive an accreditation in pediatric pain rehabilitation.
