Overview

In 2020, the City Council of Nassau Bay granted Moody Neuro’s request for a Specific Use Permit for a new state-of-the-art facility. After an extensive amount of planning and design work, a special groundbreaking ceremony took place to commence construction in July of 2021. The facility is set to open early 2023. This milestone offers us the ability to continue our exceptional efforts of offering post-acute brain injury rehabilitation in order to meet the growing need for this type of specialized treatment. Kirksey Architecture, JW Kelso Construction, Pritchard Associates, and Moody Leadership are leading the construction efforts.

Therapies

The new space will assist up to 40 residential patients and will also offer outpatient programs. This new location will employ approximately 150 clinical, medical, residential, and support staff. The range of services offered will include the following:

Occupational Therapy

The "occupation" in occupational therapy (OT) refers to more than just paid employment. It encompasses everything that "occupies" a person’s ... Read More time. In other words, all of the daily activities that are a part of “the job of living.” When people are unable to perform these activities, they need help in order to succeed, either from other human beings, mechanical devices, or both. At Moody, our Occupational Therapy Department works closely with individuals and their families to achieve optimal independence. Under the direction of licensed occupational therapists, clients will participate in programs designed to increase basic motor and cognitive skills, upper body strength, mobility, and the ability to safely perform activities of daily living. In addition, individual compensatory strategies are developed to match client and family needs. Clients receive specialized training and equipment to promote independence with activities of daily living. The focus of the services is to train upper extremity function, self-care skills (e.g., showering, dressing, grooming), and advanced living skills (cooking, housekeeping, money management, mobility). The OT Department uses both simulated (i.e., virtual reality) and real-life experiences for training purposes. Read Less

Community Integration

Community integration involves enabling individuals with a brain injury to live successfully in their community and participate fully in all ... Read More aspects of community life. This means more than a return to doing what they loved to do before the illness or injury. It involves the ability to live in the way the patient chooses to live without barriers. Moody Neuro fosters a patient's growth in their new life in the community as opposed to the nuances of the medical facility where they achieved medical recovery. Therapists at Moody Neuro work with patients to develop safe, productive leisure activities to improve quality of life. New activities are learned and old activities are re-evaluated to determine the need for assistance and/or adaptive equipment. Apartment trials are provided for patients who have demonstrated independent and safe behaviors on campus. While in the apartment, these patients are expected to engage in real-life scenarios (e.g., meal preparation and clean-up) with guidance from licensed therapists. Read Less

Neuropsychology & Counseling

Following brain trauma or acquired brain injury, patients may exhibit modifications to behavior, emotion, and cognitive abilities. The field of ... Read More neuropsychology seeks to understand how these modifications are correlated with the brain injury, providing an informed pathway toward progress, and a most effective rehabilitation regimen. At Moody Neuro, our Neuropsychology Department contributes to client care in three important ways: (1) comprehensive neuropsychological assessment, (2) cognitive rehabilitation and (3) management of emotional and behavioral problems. Upon admission, every client participates in a detailed assessment of his/her cognitive and emotional status. This comprehensive evaluation assesses all aspects of an individual’s cognitive skills: attention, planning and organization, language, visual processing skills, motor and sensory functioning, and memory. Patient mood and personality are also assessed. The results of this evaluation provide information about the client’s cognitive strengths, which allows the interdisciplinary treatment team to develop maximally-effective treatment plans and prioritize interventions. In addition, the neuropsychology team assists the client in adjusting to his/her disability, manages undesirable behaviors, provide individual and group therapy to survivors, and conducts family therapy when necessary.

Read More to help patients regain independence and an enhanced quality of life.Assistive technology includes any device utilized by an individual with a disability to maximize independence and allow for maximum community reintegration. For brain injury survivors, assistive technology can be as simple and low-tech as a spiral notebook to help with organization and memory, or as sophisticated as a computer-powered vocal assistant to aid with communication. The following innovative technologies complement the talents of our human staff, furthering our rehabilitation capabilities and value to the patient. LOCOMAT® The world’s leading robotic medical device, the Locomat provides highly intensive rehabilitation to increase the strength of muscles and the range of motion of joints in order to improve walking. BIONIK INMOTION ROBOTIC ARM  InMotion Interactive Therapy enables clinicians to efficiently deliver intensive motor therapy to help patients regain motor function following a neurological condition or injury.  This new generation InMotion ARM is an evidence-based neurorehabilitation technology that provides patients with real-time Assistance-as-Needed™. The InMotion ARM quietly monitors the patient’s movements during therapy while it gently assists where needed to help them complete various motor therapy activities. MOVEO XP The Moveo XP is a weight bearing exercise platform for patients who need full body weight support in order to be able to exercise and participate in the rehabilitation process. It is ideal for patients with conditions such as: lower extremity weaknesses, poor postural control, poor muscle control, and decreased lower extremity range of motion.MYRO BY TYRMOTION The Myro is a touch and pressure sensitive screen that provides bio feedback to therapist and patient alike. Utilizing a variety of attachments to target different grips and movements while also using interactive screen activities to test cognition and visual acuity. DRIVING SIMULATOR Our driving simulator allows patients to test the necessary skills to drive without risking safety. With multiple settings including traffic, day vs night and rural vs urban driving it is possible to simulate a variety of real world situations. We also have adaptions to allow those without use of lower extremities to use hand control for acceleration and break BIONESS L300GO AND H200 The L300 go utilizes FES (functional electrical stimulation) to improve thigh weakness and foot drop to allow patients improved independence and functional mobility. It can be worn throughout the day allowing movement withoutwires. The H200 Wireless Hand Rehabilitation System is an easy-tooperate system that helps the patient achieve recovery goals. Reaching, grasping, opening and closing the hand are all possible in a functional capacity using this device ZeroG The ZeroG Gait and Balance system is a robotic body-weight support system attached to a motorized trolley that rides along a ceiling-mounted track to help patients regain the ability to walk and maintain balance. When patients use ZeroG, they are safe and cannot fall, yet can be challenged as they progress. Activities such as walking up steps, getting off the floor, or navigating rough terrain are real-life demands that patients can practice with the ZeroG. Read Less

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy plays a very important role in the rehabilitation process. Our Physical Therapy (PT) Department is committed to assisting ... Read More brain injury clients in fulfilling their goals related to their physical activity and motor control. Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants evaluate and address physical limitations and functional movements (i.e., walking) by focusing on muscle strength, flexibility and balance.
