At Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital, we take the extra steps to ensure world-class care for patients and their families alike. All patients benefit from a highly customized treatment rehabilitation plan by a team of experts, who are among the best in their field, complemented by innovative technologies. This commitment is exhibited through the extra steps we take to ensure a smooth transition back into “normal” life for our patients. This includes training in fully equipped kitchens and simulated living areas to practice the fundamental skills used every day at home. Additionally, many of our inpatients transition to outpatient therapy, and have the ability to participate in a stroke support group. Bryn Mawr Rehab also offers many additional amenities including a horticulture therapy center, and free on-campus accommodations for family members who reside outside of the area.
The Lokomat is a body weight supported robotic treadmill system that helps patients learn to walk again by stimulating the central nervous system. This technology is proven to reduce a patient’s recovery time in contrast to conventional therapy alone. Offered at only a handful of medical facilities in the nation, the Lokomat is a perfect complement to the array of comprehensive therapy services offered at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital.
This device is designed to accelerate the physical rehabilitation of patients with balance impairment – including patients with Brain Injuries, Spinal Cord Disorders, Strokes, Amputations, Parkinson’s Disease, and Orthopedic Injuries. On average, we care for upwards of 2,255 patients each year with these conditions. The patient is harnessed to a trolley tracking system on the ceiling and practices walking on an actual floor surface. This enables the rehabilitative team to increase patient mobility while reducing the risk of injury.
