Typically, each clinic may have its own specific software to use for recording notes about each patient interaction. I occasionally will need to write letters of medical necessity, therefore using Microsoft Word. Certain tests and measures will also use different software programs.
There are a variety of technologies available for the various rehab disciplines, and not all are widely used by each profession, or consistent across fields. I have had the opportunity to work with underwater treadmills, automated balance machines, a mechanical exoskeleton that assists people with walking, and special goggles for viewing eye movement. I’ve heard of virtual reality being used, as well as video games to promote movement. Technology is changing every day, and so is the way it is used in rehabilitation!
