Staff members at New Community Extended Care Facility accepted a donation of a rehabilitation standing table from South Orange Village Trustee Donna Coallier and the South Orange Police Department on Dec. 9. Sergeant Nicholas Lonero and Officer Jose Albino helped transport the machine to Extended Care.
The rehabilitation standing table is priced at $8,000. It is used for a variety of purposes, including to stand patients that cannot stand independently from the wheelchair, to increase neuromuscular functions for stroke patients and to ensure improved blood circulation in the legs. It can also be used to transfer patients that are in wheelchairs.
We thank South Orange Village Trustee Coallier and the South Orange Police Department for their generous donation. The device will be put to good use at the facility.
