NeuroGym

Middlebury Convalescent Home’s goal is always to be proactive in our efforts to rehabilitate individuals in all aspects of the aging process.  With that said, we are very excited to announce that we are the first skilled nursing facility in Connecticut to have just acquired new state-of-the-art therapy equipment.

The NeuroGym ® Technology, Inc.’s Sit-to-Stand Trainer and the Bungee Mobility Trainer are patented mobility enabling equipment to improve functional independence for our patients and to help maintain quality of life.  From severe motor deficits following traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, to chronic conditions or diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy or Parkinson’s disease, to common balance and Fall Prevention issues in the elderly, the equipment was developed to enable movement and retraining where it would be otherwise very difficult or impossible to do.

The following link will provide detailed information on this new equipment along with videos to demonstrate its use.
