)-- Remaining on the front lines of rehabilitative technology is an important part of the healing philosophy at Medford Multicare Center for Living in Medford, NY. While many facilities rely on traditional and potentially outdated rehabilitation practices, Medford Multicare Center’s expert rehabilitation team has redesigned and updated their rehab suite with some of the most advanced rehab equipment available on the market today, including the OmniVR Virtual Rehabilitation System, LiteGait (for those who have difficulty standing or walking), virtual reality treadmills with screens simulating cross country settings and more.
Medford residents can re-learn how to enter and exit an automobile by utilizing Medford Multicare Center’s custom designed PT Cruiser located inside its brand new rehab suite. Medford has also built into the rehab gym a complete home environment called the “Activities of Daily Living Apartment,” for residents to effectively re-adapt to life at home. The “apartment” is equipped with a fully furnished bedroom, state-of-the-art kitchen and gorgeous marble bathroom.
Residents are now able to simulate a 360 degree shopping experience at Giella’s Market Place installed for the exclusive use of our rehab residents.
