Society is poised to take technological leaps that will impact healthcare with exciting advances in medical science and technology. Augmenting our clinical expertise with state-of-the-art technologies and techniques is at the core of what we do. For example, Gaylord is the only facility in Connecticut to have the Ekso bionic exoskeleton that allows our patients with lower-extremity paralysis or weakness to stand and walk again.
It is critical for us to offer the latest technologies to our patients so that they can benefit from the newest treatment options and achieve the best outcomes. Being able to invest in innovative equipment and treatment methods — from virtual reality and robotics to voice recognition software and telemedicine — ensures that our patients receive the most current treatment resulting in maximum functional recovery.
Our patients are individuals with head injury, stroke, and spinal cord injuries who receive treatment from our occupational and physical therapists, physiatrists, nurses, speech pathologists, and psychologists. Our clinicians make use of technologies that assess and enhance our patient’s motor and cognitive function. We seek to engage product developers, corporations and foundations, and others interested in supporting our mission to make healthier tomorrows possible, to create a community committed to a shared investment that will benefit healthcare advancement. By partnering with us to discover innovative solutions and support the programs that enhance and improve patient care across our region, you help us achieve extraordinary outcomes.
