The Department of Physical Therapy invites you to attend an Open House for our newest facilities: the STAR Clinic, the Movement Science Laboratory and the Balance and Neuromotor Rehabilitation Laboratory. The open house to showcase this equipment and for a meet and greet with physical therapy faculty is scheduled for November 2 on the first floor of the HNS Building in Dahlonega at 5 pm.
Dahlonega Mayor Gary McCullough will cut the ribbon, celebrating the official opening of these new facilities, which will be transformational for the department as well as the surrounding community.
Patients for the Student-led Therapy and Rehab (STAR) clinic are selected by The Community Helping Place, a nonprofit organization serving Lumpkin County residents in need. Once recommended by the organization and accepted by the clinic, these patients enter the care of three DPT students for hour-long therapy sessions, supervised by faculty members of the program.
Movement Science Laboratory
The movement science laboratory features a high motion analysis system with an integrated, wireless virtual reality system, EMG and force platform. This lab will allow researchers to study complex movements including robotic and prosthetic devices. Athletes, individuals with neurological problems and even animal motion can be studied.
Balance and Neuromotor Rehabilitation Laboratory
The balance and neuromotor rehabilitation laboratory offers advanced level assessment and treatment of individuals with neurological impairments from a variety of conditions including concussion, stroke, Parkinson's Disease and substance abuse.
