Community-based rehab services welcomed by residents and expats

By Cai Wenjun

Shanghai residents are able to receive rehabilitation services near their homes as community health centers start to be equipped with high-end appliances and rehabilitation robots and offer combined traditional Chinese and western therapy.

The first such facility, Dapuqiao Community Health Center in Huangpu District, has become a role model after passing a community-based rehabilitation service evaluation.

It is attracting nearby residents and even expatriates for rehabilitation training.

"The convenient service is welcomed by elderly people who suffered a stroke, people who had bone and joint surgery, children with cerebral palsy and autism, office workers with back and neck pain, and people with sports injury. These are our main patients," said Jin Ying, director of the health center.
