Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital has recently acquired a new device from the USA that allows for incredible therapeutic options for patients. Developed at NASA, the device is the only and first of its kind in Jerusalem and has been used to rehabilitate various types of injuries that have led to a limitation or prevention of walking, such as muscle weakness or balance problems. It has also been used for sports injuries and is even used by top-class athletes.
The device works by allowing patients to step slightly and be carried in the air by air that flows from below, which allows them to start putting weight on their foot in a measured and supervised manner almost immediately after surgery. This has led to much faster rehabilitation progress for patients who have been injured in their legs.
One patient, Dvir, who was operated on his leg due to a pedicle injury, used the device to return to walking in a normal way. He mentioned that during treatment on the device, he felt like he was walking like before the injury, and that the device helps him feel like he’s on the way to walking with both feet independently.
Professor Isabella Schwartz, director of the rehabilitation department at Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital, explained how this innovative device provides new therapeutic options for patients with various injuries. The hospital is excited about these new possibilities and looks forward to helping more patients with their rehabilitation process.
