Glenrose Courage In Motion (CIM) Centre
In 2010, RPK was tasked in creating a space within the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital for the first of its kind in Western Canada brand new technology. The CAREN (Computer-Assisted Rehabilitation Environment) is a system intended to help restore mobility to wounded military personnel and a wide variety of other patients.
The renovated space was designed to accommodate a large virtual reality system with curved screen, large hydraulic treadmill and a harness system. An array of sensors allow researchers, physicians and technicians to study the bio-mechanics of how patients are moving and reacting to changing environmental conditions, tailoring rehabilitation programs specifically for their needs. The facility allows patients to regain confidence in their mobility, while making recovery fun.
