  • Gorbel is Proud to Receive the ETHIE Award!

    by Jennifer D'alessandro | Nov 07, 2019
    Gorbel® is proud to announce that we were selected as a WINNER of the Ethie Award! 

    What is the Ethie Award? In short, the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation (RABEF) annually creates the opportunity to recognize companies who are living out a commitment to high standards for ethical behavior. Each year a list of “finalists” are chosen after an intense and thorough application process…which includes input like written testimonials of ethical challenges, how Gorbel® strives to build a culture of ethics, onsite interviews with employees, and more. And from these finalists there is the potential to be named as a “winner” at their annual award ceremony. Note that there is no set quantity of winners chosen each year; only those companies who meet the high bar set by the RABEF judging committee. So it is possible that in a given year no companies are selected as winners.  
    This year there were 7 finalists named by RABEF. In the end, only TWO winners were named. Gorbel® and Faraci Lange. See attached picture of the 30+ Gorbel® team members who attended the awards ceremony. And congratulations to all the finalists...to which being named is a significant honor!

  • SafeGait ACTIVE™ Install at Nazareth College

    by Emma Percy | Nov 02, 2018
    There have been some very exciting things happening in the world of Gorbel Rehabilitation! Betty Dolce announced that we have installed our very first SafeGait ACTIVE™ system. The Gorbel team worked long hours last week to install the system around clinic hours. 

    SafeGait Active

    Nazareth College issued our first order and is now the first on the planet with a newly launched SafeGait® product. 

    ACTIVE is installed at first in the York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute, alongside their SafeGait 360® Balance and Mobility Trainer. When the new Golisano Training Center is completed in 2019 it will be relocated there.

    While it’s great to get this first installation in, the real satisfaction is yet to come when there are patients in the system safely jumping after having their ACL reconstructed, or elderly clients practicing falls prevention techniques. Now that, will be awesome.

  • Gorbel Rehabilitation at AMRPA 2018

    by Jennifer D'alessandro | Oct 11, 2018
    Gorbel's Betty Dolce and Pooja Sinha attended the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association’s (AMRPA) annual conference for the first time this year! The show was held in Boston, MA, and was a huge success.


    The American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association – AMRPA – is the nation’s only trade organization dedicated solely to the interests of Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals and Units (IRH/U), outpatient rehabilitation centers, and other medical rehabilitation providers.

    It was a show that gave the team the opportunity to have meaningful conversations with key decision makers at rehabilitation facilities across the country about the clinical and financial benefits of SafeGait®. The Rehabilitation team is excited about the leads that came from this show and looks forward to attending again next year!
