Pella Regional has a new system they are using in the rehab department to help patients learn to walk again. This system is for those that have suffered a stroke, or have other neurological conditions. Liz Vermeer, Physical Therapist at Pella Regional, says that the Bioness System has a unit for both the leg and arm, that when applied to the skin, puts off an electrical impulse to create muscle activation. Vermeer adds that while it’s been around approximately eight years, Pella Regional just recently received their system, which is one of only two in the state.
