Rehabilitation technology for stroke survivors:
Good Shepherd is a Center of Excellence in the use of technology to enhance lives and augment rehabilitation. At Good Shepherd, our team uses leading-edge rehabilitation technology to help maximize function and increase independence in our patients.
Good Shepherd was the first rehab facility in North America to have Ekso with Variable Assist.
- Ekso is a wearable, bionic suit that enables individuals with lower extremity paralysis or weakness to stand and walk. Battery powered motors drive the legs and replace neuro-muscular function.
- Variable Assist is software that allows Good Shepherd's clinicians to augment their patients' strength by tuning the amount of power contributed to help walking efforts for either leg.
Good Shepherd’s Stroke Rehabilitation Program specializes in evaluating and treating:
- Functional impairments that result from stroke, including muscle weakness and difficulty walking, working or performing tasks of daily living
- Speech and language impairments or swallowing disorders
- Cognitive or linguistic impairments
- Continence issues
