Sarasota Memorial is launching its new Rehabilitation Pavilion at an “Out of this World”-themed grand opening celebration this Saturday. Nearly three years in the making, the new 74,000-square-foot, five-story pavilion features the latest technology and treatments for patients rehabilitating from serious injuries and conditions. The event features demonstrations of the latest integrated therapy systems, including a robotic exoskeleton, and continuous tours of the pavilion’s patient rooms and therapy areas. The facility features state-of-the-art gymnasiums and life skills retraining areas that include, among other things, a furnished apartment, grocery store shelves, restaurant booth and mock car where patients practice the routine acts of daily living, and an outdoor mobility garden where patients can practice using a walker, wheelchair or other mobility aids as they navigate up inclines, down ramps and on different surfaces. They also can practice getting mail from the mailbox, using a garden hose or trying their hand at the putting green.
