Among the offerings at Baptist Rehab-Germantown are un-weighing treadmill systems and aquatic therapies for assistance with early ambulation, dynamic functional splinting programs for the upper extremity, and functional electrical stimulation programs for upper extremity, lower extremity and swallowing rehabilitation. Speech therapists have access to a comprehensive diagnostic department and onsite radiologists for modified barium swallowing assessments. Our NeuroCom Balance Master with long-force plate is a computerized system that provides objective assessment, feedback, and training for balance through a variety of functional movements and activities.
Through generous donations from the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation, Baptist Rehab-Germantown is proud to have implemented several firsts in neurologic rehabilitation in the Memphis area. We were the first to offer VitalStim therapy for swallowing, the first to offer Saeboflexdymanic splinting system for the upper extremity, the first to implement the Bioness electrical stimulation program for the lower extremity as well as a comprehensive Bioness program for upper and lower extremity in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Most recently, Baptist Rehabilitation-Germantown was the first to provide in-motion upper extremity robotics in Memphis.
