Coming Soon: New Expansive Therapy Gymnasium
The new gymnasium will include the most advanced therapy equipment (Cybex, Sports Art, Nautilus, Triton, and Game Ready equipment). Will also include the Biodex 4 and Vestibular Unit for research and testing of patients.
Coming Soon: Hydroworx® Rehabilitation Pool
This is a treadmill-in-a-pool, complete with underwater cameras that allow physicians to view their patients running gait and then assess therapies on the spot. This is typically used to treat any sports medicine-related injury, post operatively and non-operative. It will likewise utilize the benefits of aquatic therapy to speed recovery and return the athlete to full performance in a much faster time frame.
Coming Soon: Human Performance Lab
This lab will conduct clinical studies that analyze sports biomechanics, perform gait and running assessments, analyze pitching and throwing mechanics, and assess overall pre- and post-operative joint kinetics/kinematics and clinical outcomes. Motion and force assessments can be performed on specific joints (shoulder, below and knee) while changing internal and external forces, as demonstrated by low handicap golfers aiming to improve their technique. This information will create an extensive database through which rehabilitative protocols can be designed. This same biomechanical data base can be used to evaluate the effects of orthopedic devices and procedures.
