Technology

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network is a national leader in the use of assistive and rehabilitative technology. Driven by our sole focus of treating our patients and envisioning their future, Good Shepherd lives at the forefront of medical innovation and technological imagination.

Rehabilitation technology gives more opportunities to people with disabilities and help them recover or improve function after injury or illness. Assistive technology includes devices, aides, and enhancements used in rehabilitation technology. People with severe mobility, learning, emotional, visual, hearing, neurological, neuromuscular, and other disabilities may benefit from rehabilitation technology to increase function by decreasing barriers in the home and workplace.

GAITRite System This computerized gait analysis system, also known as Gait Lab, uses a series of switches embedded onto a mat, on which the patient walks. Data is then collected electronically, putting gait deviations into objective terms in order to show progress over time.

Interactive Metronome – The Interactive Metronome technology works by improving timing and processing skills through exercises with a computer-generated beat. The patient attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor movements, and the interactive features engage the patient with auditory and visual guidance and provide real-time feedback.

Bioness H200® – The system’s advanced technology delivers low-level electrical stimulation to activate the nerves that control the muscles in the hand and forearm. This technology helps you regain your freedom and independence in activities of daily living after neurological injury.

Pressure Mapping – Pressure sores can be painful and even deadly to individuals in wheelchairs. Through pressure mapping, clinicians can visually assess the pressure patterns of patients, allowing them to develop, adjust and implement pressure-relieving solutions. This system can be used to assess patients in wheelchairs for seating systems, as well as in bed to identify positioning needs and support surface requirements.

Redcord Suspension System – Redcord Neurac or Redcord Suspension System is a revolutionary method of treatment for rehabilitation and muscle training known by its red cord and pulley suspension system. This rehabilitation method utilizes an anti-gravity suspension system and sling based exercises with a focus on neuromuscular activation (NEURAC). NEURAC aims to restore functional movement patterns by utilizing bungee assisted suspension exercises in order to allow for isolated and controlled movements with a focus on reversing the pain cycle. 

Simi Motion Analysis – Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network utilizes Simi Motion 2D/3D gait and functional movement analysis software to supplement observational analysis and objectively assess hemiparetic gait. Movement data recordings are obtained with use of synchronized cameras, force plates, and joint markers. The software calculates joint angle, velocity, and positional changes that contribute to gait deficits. Visual representation of this data can be a meaningful educational tool for gait retraining, promoting enhanced collaboration between the patient and therapist as well as knowledge-of-results feedback to enhance motor learning. This software can assist with collaborative decision-making regarding appropriate assistive devices or orthotics to optimize safety and independence with walking.

Vestibular Infrared Video Goggles – Infrared video goggles are able to improve patient care with accurate assessment and treatment of vertigo, dizziness, and feelings of imbalance.

Zero G – Allows for partial body-weight support that reduces the fear of falling for patients. The system includes a database for recording training data and tracking patient progress.
