We all know that exercise is at the height of importance when considering overall health and wellness. With the new addition of therapist and patient-friendly rehabilitation equipment, Jefferson Park at Dandridge is even better equipped to help treat geriatric-prevalent conditions such as muscle asymmetry, arthritis, mobility or balance issues, neurological conditions, and contracture. This new equipment, including OmniCyle elite, an OmniStand, and a NuStep T5 recumbent cross trainer, is part of our ongoing objective to improve the quality of life for our residents.
Already one of our favorite devices, the Nustep T5 cross-trainer offers residents and outpatient clients a low impact exercise to help maintain weight and improve overall fitness, promote active aging and brain health, assist with orthopedic issues, and increase the range of motion in sufferers of arthritis. The T5 is intelligently designed to simulate walking without placing stress on joints, making it a go-to cardio and strength machine for rehabilitation after an injury. With a 360-degree swivel seat and low step-through design, making it easier to get on and off the therapy equipment, this particular machine is well suited for a variety of users from joint replacement to stroke victims.
The Omnicyle Elite addition to our physical therapy equipment enhances our ability to help improve recovery of function in our patients through therapeutic exercise. The Omnicycle also helps to solve the challenge of geriatric and post-acute patient strength, coordination, and motivation. Not only does this machine provide motor-assisted training, but also offers biofeedback for improved patient performance.
The ACP OmniStand is yet another addition to our therapy equipment arsenal that gives our physical therapists increasing variety in challenging physical therapy patients. The OminStand is a standing frame with the unique ability to be unlocked in order to allow balancing on a fixed platform. This therapy devise allows physical therapists to provide manual and physical support while at the same time, offering dynamic sway that helps promote mobility and balance.
Jefferson Park at Dandridge is uniquely suited to handle physical and occupational therapy and rehabilitation. The new therapy equipment opens the opportunity to enhance our treatment of a variety of issues from muscle atrophy, to COPD. By consistently adding to our therapy equipment, we continue to become better equipped to offer customized geriatric exercise routines and multiple types of rehabilitation regiments to treat cardiopulmonary, orthopedic, and neurological issues.
