LSVT BIG for Parkinson’s Disease:

This is a research-based exercise approach emphasizing large amplitude movements which have been shown to improve walking, balance, trunk rotation and quality of life.

LSVT Loud for Parkinson’s:

LSVT LOUD improves vocal loudness, intonation and quality by stimulating the muscles of the voice box (larynx) through a systematic hierarchy of exercises.

Bioness for foot drop:

The L300 Foot Drop System is indicated for individuals who are unable to lift their foot well because of Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, or Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury. It provides low-level electrical stimulation to activate the nerves and muscles that lift the foot, allowing patients improved ability to walk. Additionally, use of this system may help reduce falls and eliminate the need for an external brace.

Bioness for hand

The H200 System provides low-level electrical stimulation to activate the nerves and muscles of the hand enabling the ability to regain hand mobility and re-educate muscles. It is appropriate for Acute, Sub Acute, and Chronic Neurologic patients.

Augmentative Communication:

Our speech therapists teach augmentative and alternative communications (AAC) which are communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language. AAC is taught by our therapists to patients with a wide range of conditions, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, head injury and stroke. AAC can be a permanent addition to a person’s communication or a temporary aid.
