Parker Jewish Institute implements new therapy modality

New Hyde Park, New York, December 16, 2019 ­– Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation is introducing Jintronix, a next-generation physical therapy modality for long-term and sub-acute patients.

Through interactive therapeutic games, the engaging platform challenges rehab patients to expand their range of motion and improve their balance and mobility and other functional reactions. Delivered on a TV monitor, these virtual activities and beneficial exercises are also entertaining, prompting patients to play football, ski, ride motorcycles and more.

Therapists can customize activities to the patients’ cognitive and physical capabilities.  And through real-time data collection, therapists can measure clinical outcomes and track and report patient progress.

“The modality makes physical therapy a lot more fun,” said Brian Sidiski, Parker’s Regional Director of Rehabilitation. “Patients are smiling and having a great time.”

Parker had considered other therapy modalities but selected Jintronix. The compact, mobile system allows for a quick setup in all six of Parker’s rehabilitation gyms, as needed. Encouraging independence, the therapeutic games are enjoyable, motivating patients to meet the challenge of their exercise program. These factors can inspire patients to become more engaged with their therapy, and look forward to their next sessions.

“Incorporating Jintronix’s innovative platform at Parker is part of our mission to continually improve programs and services, helping us to be a leader in health care,” said Michael N. Rosenblut, Parker’s President and CEO. “Our dedicated staff is driven to deliver state-of-the-art rehabilitation to optimize recovery.”
