ReGear Life Sciences, Inc. announced 19 senior care communities in Mississippi and Tennessee, including Hillview Community Living Center in Dresden, managed by Community Eldercare Services LLC , out of Tupelo, Miss., have deployed ReBound wearable therapeutic heat to reduce pain and increase the effectiveness of therapy programs. Those who suffer with arthritis, flexion contractures or who simply need improved range of motion to help prevent falls can benefit from the addition of ReBound into their plan of care.
ReBound’s soothing, penetrating heat is delivered through a variety of anatomically garments that provide a large treatment area for limbs, backs and shoulders making it more effective than other widely used heating alternatives. ReBound’s lightweight and small footprint makes it easy for therapists to administer therapeutic heat practically anywhere – in a bedroom, at breakfast or outside on a patio.
“ReBound is consistent with our mission to deliver excellence in senior care at Hillview in Dresden and throughout all the facilities we manage,” said Troy Baumann, president of Community Eldercare Services. “ReBound’s impact in reducing pain, improving outcomes and having a positive effect on reimbursement makes it a logical choice for our therapy programs and even a competitive differentiator for our facilities.”
According to Jeff Swoveland, ReGear’s chief executive officer, “The 19 facilities managed by Community Eldercare will quickly benefit from ReBound’s impact on therapeutic efficacy and therapist productivity. All of this equates to a better clinical alternative, especially at a time when outcomes have never been more important for post-acute care communities’ competitive differentiation.”
