At Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona, we are pleased to offer our patients the latest in rehabilitative technology. This allows us to enhance our patients’ treatment options and results.
ZeroG® Gait and Balance System
The ZeroG Gait and Balance Training System helps individuals safely improve balance, gait, and functional independence without the risk of falling.
ZeroG is a robotic, body-weight support system mounted to a motorized trolley that rides along an overhead track. To begin therapy, a therapist secures a patient into a comfortable harness that is attached to the ZeroG robot. The amount of support is individualize for each patient depending upon the patient’s level of ability.
The ZeroG software includes interactive balance training and games with visual feedback. Therapy information from each treatment session is recorded to allow the therapist to closely monitor recovery.
Our current Bioness® technology helps patients regain lost mobility or movement in their hands and feet. This system is especially useful for stroke patients, those who may have suffered a traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and patients with partial spinal cord injuries. The system uses electrical stimulation to help patients regain more muscle control, which in turn gives them more functionality and mobility.
The Hand Rehabilitation System is easy to use and has been shown to facilitate the use of hand function not only during the acute phase of recovery for stroke patients and those suffering from a brain injury, but also in select patients whose injuries are years old.
The Foot Rehabilitation System is wireless, low-profile, and lightweight. It consists of three components: a gait sensor that’s worn in the shoe, a wireless stimulating leg cuff worn below the knee, and a clinician-programmed control unit. This technology allows the patient to achieve a more normalized gait changing terrains and at various speeds.
