ADL Simulation Lab
Watch students in our occupational therapy programs use assistive devices tailored to each scenario as they work with mock patients on daily living skills, such as getting in and out of a bathtub and brushing their teeth.
These anatomy visualization tables display fully segmented 3D human anatomy via a fully interactive touchscreen experience. You can see realistic views inside the human body by selecting different planes and cross-sections. You can query structures, save the information inside a USB drive, and study the visualizations in more depth at home.
Our driving simulators are built with actual car parts, including a six-speed transmission and a force-feedback steering wheel. Video monitors play simulations, so the user feels like they’re really driving. Our OT students use this tool to assess patients’ reaction speeds and visual perception, and to help patients build or rebuild their driving skills.
Double Robotics’ telepresence robot enables a remote healthcare provider to communicate with a patient through a movable robot with an iPad. You can practice remote consultations, such as moving the robot around a hospital bed and angling it to assess the patient’s wound. For the patient, the robot offers a closer analogue to a human presence than does a static screen.
This rehabilitation and exercise machine enables you to gather real-time, objective data on patient movement. Using functional attachments, the BTE measures different types of movement—such as opening a door, steering a car, and playing certain sports. It’s a powerful tool for gauging patient progress and assessing how well your interventions are working.
