The Bushwick Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare in Cypress Hills now has new technology called 'Jintronix'. It is a high-tech interactive tool that helps patients recover from brain and orthopedic issue using an optical sensor to detect movement as a computer tracks their progress. Staffers says the system is a great way to motivate their patients.
"Some patients don't even want to get out of bed. Some patients we really have to provide a lot of motivation to have them come down and do exercises but this is a great tool to utilize to get them motivating," said Erica Hiesiger, Director of Rehabilitation for the Bushwick Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare.
One patient says that the program gives him even more hope that he will one day be able to play the drums again.
