Project Description

Salus clinicians take objective measures to identify residents with an increased risk of adverse events and to provide feedback regarding progress. We believe the combination of objective data and effective communication between our therapy team, nursing and facility staff, and providers is essential to exceptional patient care.

  • Reducing fall risk

  • Alleviating discomfort from chronic conditions

  • Helping patients recover from surgery

  • Improving strength and balance

  • Increasing endurance and functional independence

  • Adapting to visual, mobility, balance, and muscle loss impairments
