Labs

Students working with a client in one of JWU’s dedicated OTD labs.

As an OTD student, you’ll practice your specialty in state-of-the-art labs, and even have access to the Physician Assistant program’s Cadaver Lab.

These labs include

  • a modified home setup of a living room, kitchen and bathroom
  • a state-of-the-art driving simulator used as part of a comprehensive assessment to determine the extent that impairments in visual, cognitive and motor abilities may limit driving ability and performance
  • high-tech visual assessment and training equipment
  • a vestibular testing device for balance assessment
  • a 3-D printer for the production of splints and adapted equipment
  • a hospital bed area for practice interactions with a Laerdal Nursing Anne Simulator
  • an ergonomically designed lab to help you learn to safely transfer and move clients with a variety of special needs, such as mobility impairments
  • a pediatric sensory space featuring a large free-standing swing, bubble tube, and rock-climbing wall
