RUSH Copley offers both inpatient and outpatient physical rehabilitation. The inpatient center features a therapy gym designed to maximize patients’ potential as they return to independence. An automobile and other true-to-life features replicate daily activities and allow patients to engage in tasks that promote function and independence. The center also uses virtual reality augmented therapy systems for individuals with physical limitations; cognitive software that provides exercises to enhance attention, reasoning, memory and cognitive processing speed; and VitalStim therapy which uses electrical stimulation to aid in muscle strengthening to improve swallowing for those with swallowing dysfunction.
The outpatient physical rehabilitation center provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy as part of a robust continuum of rehabilitative care. Dedicated clinicians address many areas, including strength, balance and limited motion. Specialized equipment such as computerized dynamic posturography aids in addressing concussion management and in assessing and treating patients experiencing vestibular or balance problems.
