Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency
Coming in the spring/summer of 2015, MossRehab will introduce an orthopedic physical therapy residency program.
The MossRehab Orthopedic Residency will be an intensive, one-year experience combining clinical mentoring and didactic learning. The program is in line with the American Physical Therapy Association's Vision 2020 plan, which stresses the increasing need of residency/fellowship education within a doctoring profession.
Neurologic Residency for Physical Therapists
MossRehab developed the first neurologic physical therapy residency program in the country, credentialed by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in 2003. Since then, the program has produced 17 graduates, with 100 percent passing the NCS examination and receiving specialist certification.
Our residency program provides an intensive, one-year experience combining clinical and didactic learning opportunities. The foundation of the program is over 200 hours of one-on-one clinical mentoring with expert clinicians at MossRehab. This occurs concurrently with clinical practice as a treating therapist: residents move through several clinical rotations within the programs offered at MossRehab. The resident will also receive >150 hours of instruction based on the APTA's Neurologic Description of Specialty Practice. Additional components include structured learning opportunities in areas related to clinical practice, teaching and scientific inquiry.
What if you could walk again? Look at the world eye-to-eye again?
Those are the questions posed by the makers of ReWalk, a motorized exoskeleton suit that enables patients with lower limb disabilities, including complete paralysis, to independently stand, walk, and—in some cases—climb stairs.
ReWalk was designed by Argo Medical Technologies, a medical device company located in Israel.
MossRehab launched the first clinical trials in the U.S. for ReWalk in 2009, and is proud to have played a part in development of the device, which has received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in hospitals and at home.
