Marianjoy Assistive Rehabilitation Technology Institute (MARTI)
The Marianjoy Assistive Rehabilitation Technology Institute (MARTI) addresses rehabilitative needs for people with disabilities or injuries who want to improve their capabilities in the home, workplace and community. Marianjoy therapists utilize the state-of-the-art rehabilitation technology through MARTI to deliver the most advanced therapy options available. This technology augments the customized treatment programs Marianjoy therapists develop for each patient to maximize functional independence and expand educational, vocational, recreational and communicative opportunities.
In addition, computerized advancements in rehabilitation allow Marianjoy clinicians and researchers to collect and analyze data for evidence-based research, applying what is learned to improve patient outcomes. Findings are shared with clinicians nationwide at conferences and symposiums.
MARTI consists of eight Centers of Excellence targeting various therapy needs with highly specialized services, each containing the latest in rehabilitation technology:
• Communication and Daily Living
The Tellabs Center for Neurorehabilitation and Neuroplasticity, a recent addition to MARTI, features advanced technology for neurorehabilitation, dramatically expanding treatment options for patients. Robotic devices, electrical stimulation, and additional tools are used therapeutically to intervene at the earliest stage of recovery, profoundly impacting a patient’s long-term recovery.
