The C5 facility renovation began Nov. 22, 2006 to provide an aesthetic and medically advanced setting for prosthetic and rehabilitation services. The project maximized available space, including the conversion of an outdoor courtyard to a multi-terrain obstacle course.
The outdoor area now contains ramps, stairs, and beams that allow patients to work on ambulation and balance. Sand, gravel, rock and brick terrains simulate surfaces encountered in everyday communities. A 30-foot climbing wall is used to work on agility, problem solving and muscle strengthening.
As part of the rehabilitation center, a training apartment gives patients the opportunity to practice tasks in an environment that they will encounter upon discharge. There is a full kitchen, complete with microwave, stove/oven, refrigerator and dishwasher, as well as a bedroom, living room and bathroom with a tub/shower combination. The living room offers a computer work station with a wide variety of computer assistive devices such as one handed keyboards, print enlargers and voice activated technology.
Our state-of-the-art gait lab includes a high resolution, accurate motion capture system to digitally acquire, analyze and display three dimensional motion data. It will provide quantitative documentation of walking or running ability as well as identification of any underlying cause for gait deviations. Art work throughout the hallways feature talent from San Diego disabled artists, including our own patients.
