Bioness Vector Elite System
Our graduate health science programs are proud to share the latest innovation being offered to support our goal of exposing students to state-of-the-art rehabilitation technology while also helping to meet the therapeutic needs of our community. The Bioness Vector Elite System will provide students with clinical learning opportunities while helping local community members relearn to walk and return to daily activities of living as they recover from stroke; amputations; orthopedic, brain and spinal cord injuries; and other neurologic diagnoses. Suspended from a custom designed ceiling track system, the Vector provides a safe, algorithm-driven support system that allows individuals to regain mobility by unloading a precise amount of body weight during therapeutic activities.
