Chicago, IL – Nov. 15, 2021 – Ignite Medical Resorts partners with DIH to bring robotic technology to supplement its already robust rehabilitation program.
DIH is proud to recognize Ignite Medical Resorts as a DIH Technology Vanguard and SNF Center of Excellence and the first SNF group in the nation to offer the Andago® robotic therapy to its guests.
”The Andago allows us to mobilize guests much earlier in their stay with us,” explained Mathew Thengil, MA, OTR/L, Ignite’s Chief Therapy Officer and Partner.
Typically, with lower functioning guests we would gather two to three therapists and bring the guest into the parallel bars in an attempt to get them into a standing position, but with the Andago and its full fall protection we are able to work with a similar guest with only one therapist. This is safer for the staff, the guest and of course increases efficiency. The Andago safely allows the guest to ambulate and even maneuver over and around obstacles.
