Rehab centers and healthcare facilities that specialize in physical therapy and hydrotherapy generally have cutting-edge equipment and are staffed by licensed therapists and medical professionals. While the quality of the equipment and expertise of the staff in these venues are important, other elements also help to create an environment conducive to healing and recovery, such as the flooring, which adds to the aesthetics, comfort, and overall safety of patients and staff.
When developing a rehab center or healthcare facility, designers must research the impact that all the venue’s elements can have on the patients and staff. Using this research to design and build these facilities is called evidence-based design (EBD), which means that designers use evidence from credible research to ensure the best possible environment for patients and staff.
The most important objectives of EBD include:
Flooring is an important element of EBD solutions. Several flooring types are available for rehab and physical therapy centers, including luxury vinyl tile (LVT), sheet vinyl, vinyl composite tile (VCT), linoleum, and rubber flooring. Mondo provides hospital-grade rubber flooring that support EBD objectives, so they are ideal for rehab centers and healthcare facilities that provide physical therapy and hydrotherapy. Mondo flooring also is anti-microbial, which helps with infection control, shock absorbent, and slip resistant, and it can be manufactured in just about any color to match a facility’s aesthetics.
This guide will present the advantages of using rubber flooring in rehab centers and healthcare facilities, as well as how Mondo’s rubber flooring options can benefit those venues that provide physical therapy and hydrotherapy.
Rubber flooring has become a popular option for rehab centers and healthcare facilities because it is durable, easy to maintain, and has proven to be resilient in all healthcare settings. The main benefits of using rubber flooring in rehab centers and healthcare facilities include:
