|Welcome to the spring edition of the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network Pediatric Newsletter. The pediatric therapists from Salem, Lexington, Cape Cod, Charlestown, Foxborough, and Kent (RI) have been very busy gathering information on rehabilitative technology. Technology assists patients in developing independence, reaching their goals, and recovering from injuries faster than ever before!
This newsletter focuses on a few different areas of rehabilitative technology that help patients find their strength. In this publication, you will find information on robotic technology that assists patients in developing more functional movement and computerized programs used for voice therapy. Another article focuses on augmentative and alternative communication that is helping many patients across the network find their voice. Also included is an article to help determine when power mobility might be the best choice for patients and their families. Lastly, a practical guide to help parents make screen time more engaging for their children. We hope these articles are meaningful to you.
