Standard ACP Equipment Suite
Omnistim 500: Multi-Modality Electrotherapy System – The Omnistim 500 provides a broad spectrum of electrotherapy options including IFC, TENS, MFAC, NMES, HVPC – Monophasic System and Continuous MF Nerve Block for effective pain management, relief of muscle spasms, increased range-of-motion, prevention of muscle disuse atrophy, increased circulation and muscle re-education.
Omnistim FX2: Patterned Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulator – The Omnistim FX2 incorporates a patented and proprietary electrotherapy waveform that replicates normal neuromuscular movement patterns for motor re-learning and neuromuscular re-education to address urinary incontinence, stroke recovery, joint replacement and other neurological and orthopedic conditions.
Omnisound 3000: Therapeutic Ultrasound System – The Omnisound 3000 provides “pulsed” and “continuous” mode thermal and non-thermal applications for treatment of inflammation, pain and muscle spasms. In addition, it has been shown to increase local circulation and enhance the extensibility of collagen tissues for the treatment of joint stiffness and contractures.
Omnicycle Elite: Active-Assist Motorized Rehabilitation Cycling System – The Omincycle Elite system provides “powered-assist” exercise therapy for post-acute patients who may not typically be able to participate in therapeutic exercises due to lack-of-strength, coordination, paralysis and other conditions. The system includes upper and lower extremity exercise options, as well as biofeedback.
Megapulse II: Pulsed Shortwave Diathermy – The Megapulse II provides state-of-the-art thermal and sub-thermal treatment capabilities to address edema, pain, inflammation, decrease joint stiffness, relieve muscle spasms and increase local blood flow. The system’s mild to vigorous thermal effects may also be used to increase the extensibility of collagen tissues in connective tissue disorders such as scar tissue and contractures.
Omnitest Outcome Measurement System: ACP’s proprietary Omnitest tools include objective measurement for Tissue Hardness, Algometry and Manual Muscle Testing. They system also includes a wireless printer to produce a comprehensive outcomes report following patient testing. With the increasing need for objective documentation related to denials, RAC audits and establishing medical necessity for continued treatment, the Omnitest system represents a progressive solution to effectively manage treatment plans and regulatory/reimbursement requirements.
VirtuBalance: Falls are a growing problem in facilities. Many Elders have impairments with balance, gait and general daily function—factors that contribute to an increased risk of falling. In an effort to preserve the independence of our Elders and be leaders in rehabilitation progress, West Ridge is proud to introduce VirtuBalance™ from VirtuSense Technologies, our newest piece of therapeutic equipment that was purchased through our Blue Stone Therapy Team. VirtuBalance uses 3D camera technology to accurately determine areas of the body at risk for falls or an unsteady gate. This state of the art equipment is one of a kind and is not found in any facility in Cedar Rapids.
This equipment will:
– Identify and reduce your risk of falling
– Detect gate disorders balance.
– Detect area where you may need additional conditioning
– Objectively track you progress.
Neuroprobe 500: Infrared & Electrotherapy Technology – The Neuroprobe 500 offers multiple electrotherapy protocols in conjunction with Infrared Therapy for pain management, increased local circulation, relief of joint stiffness and relaxation of muscle tissue associated with a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, chronic pain, connective tissue dysfunction and neuropathy.
