Albany --  An expanded rehabilitation center to help injured people get back on their feet and back on their jobs opened in east Albany.

Phoebe Putney Hospital representatives say it's important to keep their Industrial Rehab center in East Albany where most of Albany's industries are located. Now, the center provides access to physicians, physical and occupational therapists, and athletic trainers under one roof.

The facility also includes a new Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment machine that can simulate more than 200 activities. 

"We can simulate so many different jobs using that machine, but it also gives us the opportunity to work with range of motion, strengthening for different diagnoses that individuals come in with so it's a well rounded tool for us," says Sr. Physical Therapist Mary Thompson.  

 The center can also provides employers with work site analysis.
