COVID-19 Maker Challenge

Portable rehab equipment for isolated residents

by Maggie Tolan | 11 months ago | in Nursing Home Challenge

When a new resident is admitted, even if they test negative for the virus, they have to placed in isolation for 14 days. This means that they cannot do many of their rehab activities and thus lose a lot of progress in 2 weeks of inactivity or decreased activity. It would be helpful to have portable rehab equipment that the Physical Therapists could take to their rooms for use, in particular the parallel bars needed for standing and mobility.
