Project

GTfit Therapeutic Rehabilitation Play Unit

At Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, play isn't just something patients look forward to after recovery-it's part of the healing process. This therapeutic play and fitness space is designed for patients of all ages and abilities: from adults who use GTfit exercise equipment as part of their physical therapy, to the pediatric patients who experience the healing power of play during their convalescence. For the patients at Glenrose, PlayWorx is just what the doctor ordered. 

Goal

Integrating Rehabilitation with Therapeutic Play
  • Create an outdoor fitness oasis
  • Feature customized sculptures, climbers, and swings for a therapeutic recreational space
  • Include inclusive play structures for individuals of all ages and abilities
