Mobility Services

Take advantage of mobility services from the experienced physical therapists at Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation. If a wheelchair or other type of mobility device can help you move more easily, safely and comfortably, our team will help you find and learn to use the best choice for you.

Certified Therapists

Get expert care from our certified assistive technology professionals — physical therapists with advanced training to help people choose and use adaptive devices.

Seating & Mobility Clinic

You may be right for Adventist HealthCare’s Seating & Mobility program if you’re 18 or older and:

  • Have difficulty walking because of weakness, balance problems, injury or illness
  • Use a wheelchair that’s hard for you to move or causes discomfort, pain or pressure ulcers (sores)

At your first appointment, your therapist will provide:

  • Assessment of your posture, range of motion, skin health and strength
  • Education to prevent falls and avoid injuries
  • Treatment plan personalized to you, which may include other types of rehabilitation services

Types of Assistive Devices

The right equipment can help you feel more comfortable, stay safe, and improve your posture and breathing. Your provider may recommend an assistive device, such as:

  • AlterG Bionic Leg® – Wearable device that improves balance, gait and strength during therapy
  • A walking aid, such as a cane, crutches or a walker
  • Prosthetics, which replace a part of the body
  • Orthotics, splints or braces that support parts of the body
  • Scooter, a motorized vehicle with wheels
  • Wheelchair

Customized Wheelchairs

Be as independent as possible at home, work and in your community. Your therapist will use pressure-mapping technology to help you find a wheelchair cushion that evenly distributes your weight when you sit. This helps you avoid pressure sores and stay comfortable.

Neurological Mobility Specialists

If your movement is affected by a stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS) or other nervous system condition, advanced technology can help you improve your strength and flexibility. As part of your neurological rehabilitation plan, your doctor may recommend you use:

  • AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill® – Exercise equipment that keeps a person stable and supported while they relearn to walk
  • Bioness® devices – Technology you wear that uses gentle electrical stimulation to improve hand, leg and foot function
  • Suspension system – Supports that help you practice walking
  • Modified constraint-induced therapy – Treatment to improve your ability to use a stroke-affected arm
  • Neurocom SMART EquiTest – Test that checks balance and what treatments may work for you
  • Neuromuscular training – Therapy to relearn movement skills
  • RT 300 functional electrical stimulation (FES) leg cycle – Machine that you cycle from a chair or wheelchair
