Texas NeuroRehab Center uses a variety of equipment and technologies to help aid in medical rehabilitation. Below you will find a list categorized by issues they address.

Hand, Arm and Shoulder Therapy

Bioness H200: activates the nerves that control the muscles in the hand and forearm. Helps goals of reaching, grasping, opening and closing the hand.

Saebo Flex/Saebo Reach: designed for clients who have some movement in their fingers, but are unable to open their hand due to tightness. Enables patients to open their hand and engage in therapeutic “grasp-and-release” tasks

Saebo Mobile Arm Support: designed to facilitate and challenge the weakened shoulder during functional tasks and exercise drills. Patients with proximal weakness can now participate in proven treatment techniques, like task-oriented activities

Saebo Stim Micro: provides sensory electrical stimulation (SES) to both the hand and arm. It provides a very low level of stimulation delivered over a longer period of time.

Various splinting materials to fabricate custom orthotics for UE

Heated Aquatic Therapy Pool: Multiple entrances (including stairs), Temperature at 90-94 degrees, chair and overhead lift, ARJO, Aquatic Certified Therapists

Standing, Ambulation and Gait

Bioness L300: designed to help people with certain neurological conditions walk more naturally, with increased speed and improved balance. May help you eliminate the need for a rigid ankle-foot orthosis (AFO), or braces, and may reduce risk of falls and injuries.

Bioness L300+: thigh cuff to give you greater control over bending and straightening your knee, which may help you walk more naturally. May help you eliminate the need for a rigid knee-ankle-foot orthosis (KAFO), or braces, and may reduce risk of falls and injuries.

Biodex Gait Trainer 3: a treadmill that issues both audio cueing and visual biofeedback to prompt patients into their correct gait pattern.

LiteGait with BiSym: gait training device that simultaneously controls weight bearing, posture, and balance over a treadmill or over ground. LiteGait provides proper posture, reduces weight bearing, eliminates concerns for balance, and facilitates the training of coordinated lower extremity movement.

Maxi Sky Ceiling Lift: harness system allowing convenient assistance for patients requiring standing, stepping, and walking practice.

Vertigo

Infrared Monocular Video Goggles: front-mounted video goggles are used during the Dix-Hallpike test for diagnosis of Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Treating the patient with BPPV using the Epley maneuver is easier when you can watch the nystagmus. Recording of eye videos on a computer hard drive allows real time as well as repeat viewing of abnormal eye movements that may have been missed the first time.

VIMA REV Goggles: Stroboscopic training with variable speeds is a style of training that can help enhance sensory skills. Research has shown that regular strobe training can improve sensory skills like reaction time, depth perception, and focus.

Muscle strengthening and conditioning

Total Gym Power Tower: adjustable exercise aid that allows adjustable resistance form 1-72% of the user’s bodyweight. Designed to strengthen, condition, and rehabilitate multiple major muscle groups with more than 200 exercises.

MOTOmed: leg and arm/upper body trainer. In case of spasticity, muscle cramping or any sort of movement blockage, the MovementProtector -stop the pedal movement and adjusts to the changing muscle tension. The ServoCycling feature supports the user during active training. This function enables, even people with minimal muscle strength, to train actively without overstraining. The SymmetryTraining function is beneficial when targeting the weaker side of the body, showing a two-scale diagram show the user how much strength they exert with the left and the right body half.

Dysphagia

The VitalStim® Therapy System is an adjunctive modality to traditional exercise that unites the power of electrical stimulation with the benefits of swallowing exercises. Combining VitalStim and traditional therapy allows clinicians to help accelerate strengthening, restore function, and help the brain remap the swallow.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)-Used to improve facial muscle range of motion and sensation when the facial nerve is impacted by a stroke or surgical procedure.
