Community integration is a key part of health and wellness, especially among populations with chronic medical conditions and disabilities. Currently, patients are is limited in their opportunities for community reintegration training by COVID-19 as well as various other barriers including medical condition, access, and resources, among others. Shepherd Center and AETOS IMAGING/ SIG have developed a virtual outing platform that allows for individuals with disabilities to take three dimensional tours of community locations that include various training points for how to problem solve a wide range of barriers that individuals using a mobility device may encounter in the community. This technology has the potential to be used by clinicians across the rehabilitation spectrum for a low-cost, high-return training option for patients with a range of disabilities and medical conditions.
