Technology + Therapeutic Tools

Where innovation meets rehabilitation.

Mary Free Bed at Covenant has invested in some of the most advanced rehabilitative technology available to help put patients on the path to recovery.

Aretech Ovation

One of only two in the nation at the time of installation, this interactive treadmill system uses robotic dynamic body-weight support to help patients walk at various speeds and inclines. Designed for adults up to 700 pounds, this rehabilitation technology enables patients to walk and increase their cardiovascular endurance. Even the most debilitated patients can stand and move, putting them on the path to recovery.

Aretech Zero-G

Hundreds of feet of the ZeroG ceiling-mouted ambulation system are located throughout our inpatient and outpatient treatment areas. Patients are secured in a harness system that protects against falls and provides body-weight support to safely work on barrier-free walking and balance activities.

Bioness BITS

The Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS) features an interactive touchscreen to help patients improve hand-eye coordination, concentration, endurance, eye movement, reaction time and peripheral vision. This dynamic tool can be particularly beneficial for patients recovering from a stroke or traumatic brain injury and experiencing cognitive deficits related to vision.


Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) safely uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves, causing muscle contractions in the arms and legs. This specialized therapy tool enables therapists to target specific sets of muscles. This can be effective for improving strength for people with a spinal cord injury or certain neurological conditions.

Tollos lift system and harness/walking paths

The Tollos lift system helps team members safely lift, move and reposition patients with limited mobility, whether in their room or to help facilitate walking in the hallways.
