State-of-the-art robotics for rehab at Eden Private Hospital

Eden Private Hospital has launched South-East Queensland's most high-tech rehabilitation program, after a significant investment in state-of-the-art robotics, sensors, virtual reality and gamification equipment to achieve enhanced results for patients.

The new robotics technology, which has just arrived from Austria, will benefit a wide range of adult and adolescent rehabilitation patients, helping to improve functional deficits associated with stroke and other neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and Parkinson's, as well as musculoskeletal and spinal conditions.

Eden Private is the only hospital in South-East Queensland to offer an extensive robotics rehabilitation program and, as a result, is expecting to become a destination for patients to undertake the intensive therapy.

Chief executive officer, Jo Munday, said hospital operator Healthe Care successfully trialled the technology earlier this year at Eden Private and one of its hospitals in New South Wales, Toronto Private, before establishing the advanced rehabilitation program.

"Our focus is on remaining at the forefront of new and innovative technologies that can improve outcomes for patients and there is a significant evidence-base on the benefits of introducing robotics into our rehabilitation program, a widely used approach internationally, particularly in Europe," she said.
