Patients with mobility issues can now exercise their arms, wrists and shoulders while in bed instead of having to be moved to the gym in the Physiotherapy Department. A new, mobile arm ergometer unit, purchased through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, is easily transported to a patient’s bedside for required cardiovascular strengthening and conditioning, increasing accessibility for these patients.
Culturally sensitive care is respectful of people different from us. This means that unique needs, preferences, beliefs and values are appreciated. You will receive care without discrimination based on race, colour, age, religion, gender, national origin, disability, education, income, diagnosis or sexual orientation.
