Enter Jintronix: Therapeutic exercise levels up


The Steuben Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare has leveled up to Jintronix. 

It’s a bio-feedback interactive tool for all functional levels, whether a user is in a wheelchair or standing up. 

The 3D camera provides assessments and activities for users to receive immediate feedback on their progress

Withe the guidance of a therapist, users can virtually ride a motorcycle, go skiing, play soccer or do daily chores instead of sitting in a chair, lifting their legs for mobility. 

“I got pneumonia and I went to the hospital, my heart and stuff bottomed out and they’re teaching me how to do things again,” Ronald Hadley, a resident at the Steuben Center said. 

It was with the help of Jintronix, Ronald is now able to see improvements in his balance. He has increased movement in his arms and legs, which he didn’t think he’d be able to do. 

“I can choose a game that’s directly related to their functional deficit, meal prep, gardening walking or just fun games like going through a maze, and they want to do that for longer,” Anthony Just, the director of rehabilitation at the Steuben Center, said. 

“You get to see what you’re doing and that in itself is quite amazing, it makes you want to do more,” Ronald said. 

This program was only installed at the Steuben Center just a couple months ago. And as for Ronald, Jintronix has helped him meet his functional goals, which is one part of the discharge plan to go home.
