New England Rehabilitation Hospital in Woburn last Friday was scheduled to open a state-of-the-art rehabilitation gymnasium designed to improve and speed the recoveries of those who have sustained a stroke or brain injury or have other neurological disorders. Located on the third floor of the hospital, the 1,800-square-foot Center for Advanced Technology offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech/language pathology sessions. In addition to those with neurological disorders, the facility will benefit patients with orthopedic, dizziness, and balance issues, as well as individuals with prostheses. The center was the result of a $500,000 investment by the hospital in renovations and new equipment, including two cutting-edge devices not found elsewhere in the state: Motorika’s ReoGO, a robotic system for upper-limb therapy to improve arm and hand movements; and Bioness’s Dynavision 2, a vision skills technology that helps improve hand-eye coordination and reaction times.
