Lokomat

Who We Are:
The OUHSC College of Allied Health and a group of community leaders have purchased Lokomat® equipment to provide robot-assisted walking therapy to improve the mobility of many people who thought they would never walk again.  Only forty Lokomat® systems are available in the United States, the closest being in Dallas; there is not another one between Oklahoma and California.

We are now seeking additional support for the pediatric component of this equipment and are near completion of this fundraising effort.  In addition, we have received funding to add a virtual reality component to the equipment.                 

Who We Serve:
Having a Lokomat® at The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center would still be a dream if not for the passion of community leaders and their generosity.  As one of the largest supporters of this project, you understand the impact this will have on our state.

The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and the College of Allied Health are deeply grateful for your consideration of a gift for the pediatric enhancement to the Lokomat®.  Through your gifts, you will be advancing the education and professionalism of generations of health care providers and the health of the countless Oklahomans they will serve

What We Do:
Lokomat® helps people improve their ability to walk after a disability caused by brain and spinal cord injuries, stroke or neurological and orthopedic conditions.  The Lokomat® machine is already providing an extraordinary tool for teaching students and caring for patients.

Memory Loss Functional Performance Clinic

Who We Are:

  • Toby Hamilton, PhD, MPH, OTR/L, FAOTA: an occupational therapist with over 31 years of experience as an educator and clinician interested in the cognitive performance of people with a variety of diagnoses. 

  • Carolyn Craven, PT, DPT: a physical therapist and certified vestibular specialist with over 15 years of experience as an educator and clinician interested in falls and balance issues in older adults with a variety of diagnoses. 
Who We Serve:
Adults with memory loss that impairs functional abilities; this population includes older adults and families living with a diagnosis of dementia. 

What We Do:
We provide a comprehensive program that maximizes functional performance through teaching individuals or families:
  • how to modify daily life activities so that loved ones perform at their highest ability;
  • how to modify the home environment to minimize fall risk or cognitive/behavioral disturbances;
  • how to create a daily schedule that minimizes boredom, enhances cognitive abilities, reduces behavioral disturbances and improves quality of life for the individual and family;
  • how to use external aides to improve memory for functions such as medication management;
  • how to access community resources to meet individual or family needs;
  • safe and individually- prescribed exercise options for the individual or family which improve not only the ability to stand and walk, but also improve general health.

ReWalk

Who We Are:
The OUHSC College of Allied Health has purchased two ReWalk® clinical exoskeleton models to provide robot-assisted walking therapy to improve mobility of people who have experienced spinal cord injuries or trauma. ReWalk® is the only FDA cleared exoskeleton for rehabilitation and personal use in the United States. OUHSC currently houses the only ReWalk® project in the state of Oklahoma; the next closest location for this service offered by professionals is Dallas, Texas.

Who We Serve:
We primarily serve adults who have experienced spinal cord injuries or trauma resulting in an inability to walk. ReWalk® is intended for use by individuals with affected lower extremities whose hands and shoulders can support crutches or a walker.

What We Do:
ReWalk® is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides individuals with spinal cord injuries to stand and walk upright. The system allows independent walking while simulating natural gait patterns of the legs. We provide a comprehensive training program that maximizes functional performance using the ReWalk® for daily activities. The ReWalk® is already proving to be an extraordinary device for improving independence for patients and teaching students. A first evaluation typically lasts 2 hours and consists of various physical tests including range of motion, strength, balance, and overall functional mobility.

Additional Resources:
Patients and health care providers interested in learning more about the ReWalk® project can contact the OUHSC Allied Health Clinics at (405) 271-2866.
