Capitol Lakes, a Continuing Care Retirement Community in downtown Madison (Retirement.org), is now using OmniVR™ Virtual Rehabilitation System, the world’s only virtual rehabilitation system specifically designed for seniors and people with limited physical abilities.

Developed by Accelerated Care Plus (ACP), a Reno-based rehabilitation technology and education company, OmniVR is unique in the industry. The Nintendo® Wii™ and Wii Fit™ have been used to help people improve balance and range-of-motion; however, these products are targeted to higher functioning individuals and often are not appropriate for seniors. OmniVR is the only solution for seniors and people with limited physical capabilities who want to participate in the wellness benefits of virtual rehabilitation.

“Through visual feedback and a fun exercise program, the residents and locals we serve in our Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center gain skill and confidence and return to their homes more quickly,” says Josh Knops, a Capitol Lakes Physical Therapist.

The OmniVR system implemented by Capitol Lakes offers six different rehabilitation programs appropriate for the entire spectrum of aging adults, from very frail to independent. The gaming system includes an innovative, three-dimensional camera that captures the resident’s image and places it in a virtual exercise environment. The resident and therapist view the progress on a large color monitor. By exercising in a game-like environment, patients are more likely to exercise harder and longer.

On multiple occasions, people that had previously lost interest in improving their health have found a renewed interest, hope, and inspiration through the OmniVR system. Results are faster and more significant, partly due to the sense of camaraderie and competition fostered while playing the games. Residents forget that they are participating in rigorous physical therapy, and tend to enjoy the activities daily without losing interest.

Capitol Lakes serves the public as well as its residents in its Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. To inquire, call 608-283-2145 or 1-888-211-8801. Capitol Lakes is located at 333 W. Main Street, Madison, WI 53703.
