Botsford News Release
Novi, Mich. (August 21, 2013)---Botsford Hospital hosted an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony at its new location in the City of Novi for TRACC (Total Rehabilitation and Athletic Conditioning Center) yesterday. In attendance at the lunchtime event were current and former TRACC patients, officials from the City of Novi and the Novi Chamber of Commerce, representatives from Novi-area businesses, Botsford Hospital leaders and employees, and local news media.
Tours of this beautiful, totally redesigned space included time spent in TRACC's Xbox physical therapy room. The Xbox console detects user movements and displays them on the screen as part of the physical therapy. It injects a fun aspect into physical therapy and gives instant feedback by showing a realistic human avatar as the system mirrors the user. TRACC offers a full array of physical and occupational therapy.
Other highlights of yesterday’s tour included private consultation and treatment rooms, top-of-the-line exercise equipment, and occupational therapy areas. An aquatic therapy pool allows a person to use the water’s resistance of instead of weights to rehabilitate after injury or illness, avoiding the amount of weight placed on the joints by exercise outside the water. The last stop on the tour was a visit to ReNew, the highly successful medical weight management program.
At this new stand-alone location at 40245 Grand River Avenue, TRACC and ReNew are open for business and accepting new patients.
