Technology & Innovation
Andrus on Hudson (AOH) focuses on using technology to develop and implement solutions and approaches for a broad array of organizational needs within operational, strategic and mission-focused domains for the benefit of Andrus on Hudson. AOH seeks out the best innovations to better serve those we care for and to minimize the impact on those providing the post-hospital care or long-term care. The use of technology at AOH is not simply for marketing purposes or for the simple novelty, but rather to fuel real changes within the organization that:
Improve safety for employees and patients/residents
Improve the workplace quality of life for employees
Increase efficiency to allow employees to work to their full potential and improve job satisfaction
Provide more opportunities for social engagement and communication among residents, families and others
Improve and optimize internal workflow processes
"Let's go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday." - Steve Jobs
AOH continues its innovation with the launch of its new resident AI-generated art project. The project aims to showcase the creative talents of residents and patients through the use of artificial intelligence-focused engines to create unique digital artwork. The project fosters creativity, collaboration, and a love for the arts among AOH residents and patients.
The ability to tap into the imaginative minds and memories of individuals who may not have artistic capabilities or have physical/cognitive limitations has been truly amazing and inspiring. By incorporating AI technology into the art program, we can provide a unique platform for everyone to express themselves and showcase their work to the community.

LiteGait provides postural control and weight-bearing assistance for fall-free therapeutic activities. It permits the clinician to be hands-free when working with clients of all functional levels and diagnoses, to focus on better quality and increased quantity of practice.
Just because something has been done a certain way for a long time doesn't necessarily mean it's "the right way" or "best way"! There are always more solutions - more tools we should explore to improve outcomes in any given area. We are actively exploring robotic exoskeletons for use by clinical and other staff to enhance safety through innovation.

AOH is so excited to introduce the Tovertafel to our residents!
The Tovertafel is an award-winning system created for dementia/cognitive care. In Dutch, Tovertafel translates to ‘’Magic Table‘’. It works by projecting images onto flat surfaces in the form of interactive games, which stimulate movement and social interaction. Our residents are experiencing the magic and having so much fun.
"It is amazing to see how engaged the residents are while playing!" - AOH employee
