Miller Dwan Rehabilitation Lab

Last week our 2nd year PT class went down to Miller Dwan Rehab Center in downtown Duluth to check out some of the equipment that is commonly used on a day to day basis during treatment sessions. Pictured below is one of my classmates using a very expensive and awesome piece of rehab equipment called Armeo by Hocoma. I won’t be able to give this piece of equipment justice in how it is used and what all it can be used for, but check out the website I linked above to learn more. I can tell you that it is hooked up to a gaming system where the patient can work on upper extremity ROM, strength, and much more while playing a game. My classmate was shooting chickens in his game, which entailed him moving his arm to aim, squeezing the hand trigger to shoot, and rolling his wrist over (pronating and supinating) to reload. Resistance could be added or taken away, all to help promote function in an upper extremity. This particular device is most commonly used with stroke patients who have decreased function in their upper extremity. It was pretty neat to see some of the cutting edge equipment that is being utilized in clinics around the world right here in Duluth!
