Sholom Introduces Neuro-Fitness Device for Use in Senior Health Care
Sholom Rehab is now using the Reflexion Edge, a neuro-fitness device to help occupational therapy clients improve vision and balance using an innovative neuro-feedback device. Clients are already experiencing increased success in their rehabilitation and recovery thanks to the device.
Andrea Horvath, Sholom director of rehabilitation and wellness, reports: “Using the device gives clients built in feedback so they can help better guide their movements and motions as they recover from issues such as strokes, vision loss, and loss of balance. The progress and pace of recovery clients experience is amazing.”
Residents in rehabilitative care at Sholom are able to use the Edge therapy on an inpatient or outpatient basis providing flexibility for when the device is used, and it is individualized for each user. Progress on goals can easily be tracked. Clients can enhance skills like reaction time, spatial awareness, decision making, peripheral awareness, and eye-hand coordination.
