OMNIVR system

"Aspire Physical Recovery Center at Cahaba River is proud to offer its guest use of the OMNIVR system. The OMNI is a virtual reality augmented rehabilitation system that allows trained clinicians the opportunity to work with guests in novel, yet functional ways. The system can be utilized by physical, occupational, and speech therapy 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 in both sitting and standing; speech therapy can use the system in concert with these disciplines to focus on sequencing and higher level executive functioning tasks. A unique feature offered by the OMNI is the ability to personally 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."
