Innovative Equipment

The unit features innovative equipment to aid in your recovery, including the Vector Gait and Safety System®. This ceiling-mounted gait and safety system is designed to help patients improve mobility and balance while promoting a faster recovery. The system continually offsets a selected amount of the patient's weight as they move, which enables them to safely and confidently perform rehabilitative exercises.

The system is designed for both physical and occupational therapy and can help patients recovering from a variety of conditions.
