As pediatric therapy needs continue to grow, Hardin Memorial Health is seeking out innovative new treatment and management options for patients.
Recently, Hardin Memorial Health Foundation (HMHF) received a grant from WHAS Crusade for Children to purchase concussion management software called the Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS®).
BITS® is a multi-disciplinary therapy that uses visual motor activities, visual and auditory processing, cognitive skills and endurance training to measure a student athlete’s progress should they sustain a head injury.
“The WHAS Crusade for Children’s commitment to Central Kentucky’s kids and HMH is exemplary,” said HMHF Board Chairman Joe Prather.
WHAS Crusade for Children has long supported HMH and HMH pediatric therapy, having donated more than $600,000 to HMH since 2002, Prather said.
BITS® offers hundreds of customizable therapy options for patients working toward their physical, speech and occupational therapy goals. This technology is another example of cutting-edge treatment available to HMH’s 10-county service area.
