Real-life rehabilitation tools at Henry Ford Wyandotte
During inpatient physical and occupational therapy, you often have to relearn skills or adapt to new challenges. With both a Ford Escape SUV and a mock apartment onsite, you’re able to learn in a real-world setting.
- Our training SUV allows you to practice getting in and out of the car, adjust the seat and seatbelt, and safely store a wheelchair or walker. If you have your own car, our physical therapist will move the training to your car a day or two before discharge.
- Our training apartment replicates what you’ll encounter once home and allows you to practice getting in and out of bed, making a meal and getting in and out of the shower.
If you should require additional rehabilitative care after discharge, we’ll handle all necessary arrangements for your transition to outpatient rehabilitation.

Inpatient physical rehabilitation program outcomes and advantages
A study, commissioned by the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association, compared clinical outcomes for patients who received rehabilitation in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital/unit to other rehabilitation options (such as a nursing home). The study revealed key advantages to receiving rehabilitation in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital/unit such as Henry Ford Wyandotte:
- Patients return home two weeks earlier (our program's average stay is 14 days)
- Patients remain home nearly two months longer
- Patients experience an eight percent lower mortality rate, five percent fewer emergency room visits and less readmissions to the hospital
- More focused and vigorous therapy (a minimum of 15 hours per week)
