The Bannasch Institute for Advanced Rehabilitation Medicine is a technologically-advanced healthcare environment that reinforces the Institute’s Design Drivers of progress and momentum throughout the facility. Architects and interior designers worked closely with physicians and physical and occupational therapists to create a modern space that incorporates research results about the importance of motivation and progress in recovery program effectiveness. New and innovative technology was developed, tested, and implemented for the first time into the project, enhancing the tools used in the rehab process. Access to nature using various architectural features and the creation of a therapeutic landscaped outdoor rehab space responds to evidence-based design.
