Aspire Physical Recovery Center at Cahaba River now offers the OMNIVR system, a virtual reality augmented rehabilitation system that allows clinicians to work with guests in novel, yet functional ways. The system can be utilized by physical, occupational, and speech therapists with a variety of tasks available for each discipline.
For example, physical and occupational therapy can design tasks that incorporate components of upper and lower extremity strengthening along with balance training; speech therapy can use the system to focus on sequencing and higher level executive functioning tasks. The OMNIVR can customize a given task to a specific guest's needs, altering the intensity, range, etc. This not only allows participation by a variety of guests of variable presentations, but also provides an objective means of tracking progress over time. Guests who have utilized the system not only show objective gains, but they also report increased levels of confidence with functional tasks.
