Rehabilitation Care is part of the EvergreenHealth Neuroscience, Spine & Orthopedic Institute.
It covers the entire second floor of the DeYoung Pavilion on the EvergreenHealth Kirkland campus.
The vibrant space is designed to enhance the patient experience and promote well-being, and offers state-of-the-art equipment to make it a high-tech as well as a high-touch rehab center.
Elevators offer convenient direct access from the underground parking garage.
Resource Area. Our spacious resource area provides information and resources, along with accessible computer stations where patients and families can do research.
Meeting Room. This large room hosts education and exercise classes, with a wall of mirrors and a balance rail.
Treatment Rooms. These rooms provide a private area for rehab treatments and meetings with your care team.
Exercise Space. Our large physical therapy exercise area is completely open and surrounded by windows for lots of natural light.
Kitchen. This working kitchen is similar in design to most home kitchens and provides occupational therapy patients the opportunity to go through step-by-step meal preparation.
Bathroom. This non-ADA bathroom is similar to the most home bathrooms, and provides occupational therapy patients practice at navigating the bathroom with walkers and other assistive devices.
Bedroom. The studio bedroom helps occupational therapy patients learn to safely get in and out of bed, get dressed with minimal assistance and best organize their home closet for any access challenges.
Another advantage of outpatient rehabilitation over home rehabilitation is the quality and breadth of the equipment.
We also have standing frames and a ceiling-mounted lift system to help patients who need extra support with weight bearing or extra assistance walking.
MotoMed Movement Trainer. This seated movement therapy machine is similar to a bicycle and can be used by people with limited mobility. It combines arm and leg therapy using your own muscle strength or, if you are unable to move a limb, the machine can do it for you. Should your muscles stiffen up, the machine will stop and automatically reverse the movement.
GAITRite Gait Assessment System. Provides an objective measurement of your cadence, step length, and velocity to objectively quantify walking function and fall risk. Patients are tested initially, then re-tested at 30-day intervals; the system’s data documents treatment outcomes for your physician and insurance carrier.
SMART EquiTest Computerized Dynamic Posturography System. Provides an objective assessment of how you adapt your balance control and stability under conditions that reflect the challenges of daily life. Patients are tested initially, then re-tested to measure their progress and further fine tune their rehab program.
LiteGait Treadmill System. A gait training device that supports patients in a harness that controls weight bearing, posture and balance over a treadmill while eliminating the fear of falling.
Functional Electrical Stimulation. Mimics the action of healthy muscle to improve function and aid in retraining weak muscles and normal movement in the arms or legs.
Nu-Step Recumbent Cross Trainer. Provides a safe, low-impact total body workout for any ability level. The swivel seat makes this arm/leg workout easily accessible for any mobility.
Parallel bars. Helps patients progress in a stationary environment with two hand-holds before progressing to a walker that moves.
Dynavision Light Training Board. Increases coordination, muscular and physical endurance and improves motor planning through drills presented as games of skill that challenge users to give their best effort.
Outside Access. We use the curbs, the parking lot, the ramps and the grass area for walking exercises. The adjacent bus transfer station provides opportunities to work on accessing public transportation.
Fun and Games. Our therapists also utilize a lot of games to make rehab more enjoyable. Our patients can find themselves tossing objects into a basketball hoop, or playing tic-tac-toe on the floor.
