Physical & Cognitive Rehabilitation Activities

Designed to help patients relearn activities of daily living by utilizing visual scanning, object recognition, sequencing, and upper body active range of motion.

Shower Sanctuary™

Patients utilize active upper body range of motion and sequencing skills to rinse, wash, and dry their whimsical alien body. Performed in a seated position, the patient is greeted by a friendly robot that cues them through various bathing activities, such as turning the shower on, lathering with a bar of soap, using a long-handled brush, rinsing, and using a towel to dry off.
