Virtual reality therapy program set for debut at Caretel Inns open house Sept. 25
Caretel Inns of Brighton will unveil Motek Medical’s new virtual reality therapy program called “STABLE” at a free open house and health fair from 2-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25.
As the nation’s first post-acute care rehabilitation to offer this cutting edge technology, Caretel Inns has planned an afternoon of festivities for its “Creating a Stable and Balanced Lifestyle” event.
“STABLE is a high-tech way to assess an individual’s balance and stability with everyday activities. Then, based on this assessment, the equipment offers a unique therapeutic modality to work on improving the person’s balance and stability. Therapy becomes exciting and enjoyable, and working to have better balance is key to preventing falls for all ages, especially for those over age 50 ” said Cynthia Hergenroether, director of marketing. “We’re organizing this event to introduce this exciting new equipment, and to celebrate living a well-rounded and balanced life at all ages,”
The open house will feature tours for the public to experience virtual reality therapy firsthand. A health fair will provide basic screenings and advice from St. Joseph Mercy, University of Michigan, and Providence Park hospitals, and Diamond Home Health Care. Yoga classes will be led throughout the afternoon. And on the hour, Caretel Inns chefs will demonstrate healthy and delicious food creations that will complement the “healthy balanced lifestyle theme.
Live music will be performed indoors and out by The Duncan McMillan Trio and violinist Mackenzie Lerchen, along with original artwork displays from The Brighton Art Guild.
The facility is located at 1014 E. Grand River Ave. in Brighton. With sister facilities in Linden, St. Joseph and Bay City, Caretel Inns are fashioned after Bed & Breakfast style hotels. Each “Inn” provides expert healthcare based on individual needs: rehabilitation and special care, skilled nursing, assisted living, and Alzheimer’s and memory care.
