Specialty Equipment

Reliant’s state of the art equipment allows rehabilitation to begin sooner, utilizing task specific functional exercise without the pain.  Progressive exercise is the key for a rapid recovery.

VitalStim® the only dysphagia (swallowing dysfunctions) therapy backed by compelling clinical data and cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VitalStim therapy uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. 

Bioness H200® neuroprosthetic system that helps patients with upper-limb paralysis regain hand control. The H200 surrounds a patient’s hand and forearm for proper limb positioning.  Five surface electrodes integrated into the H200 stimulate and activate the hand.  The H200 can improve hand and arm performance with activities of daily living and assist in a greater feeling of independence.

Bioness L300® functional electrical stimulation system designed to help patients with neurological disorders affecting the lower extremities. Its purpose is to stimulate muscle re-education, prevent atrophy and promote a more natural walking pattern. It facilitates a quicker stride with improved steadiness and confidence with return to a more normal lifestyle.

Lite Gait™ help client's regain a more normal walking pattern after lower extremity paralysis or weakness from a stroke, brain injury or spinal cord injury. The harness suspension supports as much body weight as needed to allow the legs to move in a walking pattern without fear of falling. The client's physical therapist can start them at a very slow speed on the treadmill while helping them to move their legs correctly. As they get stronger the LITE GAIT™ device can provide assistance as they move from treadmill walking to walking across the ground.

  • Obtain supported suspension for safer, more effective gait training as well as moving from sit to stand
  • Achieve controlled reduction of weight bearing load
  • Increase or decrease the weight bearing load on the weaker side of the body
  • Learn to walk with proper upright posture
  • Use an assistive device while being supported over ground
  • Begin gait training much earlier in the rehabilitation process, and at a lower level of function
  • Have improved interaction with the therapist
  • Experience a sense of accomplishment by successfully completing therapy sessions

Wii is used to improve balance, endurance and coordination of movement while participating in a simulated activity on a television screen.  It is both fun and challenging.  The Wii can be used with patients in a wheelchair or in a standing position.  The activity can help develop the skills needed to return to the patient’s own desired leisure activity, hobby or sport.

Biodex Balance System used to assess the physical risks of falling through a series of tests.  Normal balance is controlled by a complex combination of visual, muscular and neurologic systems.  Together, these factors keep us from falling when we encounter an unexpected disturbance.  Testing and the use of this device will improve an individual’s ability to remain upright under challenging conditions.

  • Balance training includes proprioceptive and stabilization exercise, range of motion and weight shift exercises
  • Objective documentation with printed color reports that track progress and document outcomes
  • Stores data and maintains patient records to track progress

Computerized Augmentative Communication/Cognitive Software assists in the rehabilitation and re-learning of communication, memory, problem solving and reasoning skills related to aphasia.

Bariatric Equipment – Reliant respects the fact that the human population is growing larger.  Obesity is the cause of many health problems.  It is essential to have equipment to assist patients to become mobile.  Bariatric beds, chairs, bathroom safety equipment, ambulatory devices, standing frames, tilt tables and other special equipment serve patients over 300 pounds.  We have specialized rooms available to allow safe mobility for these patients and equipment to meet their needs.
