"The OmniVR is an uplifting piece of equipment...surprised to see it being used in this type of setting; it is the most modern and up to date equipment. It shows the person utilizing it what they can and cannot do. It was very challenging and it certainly helped me with my balance and coordination. Hudson Pointe and the OmniVR helped get me back home!" Andrew Mayo
