REHABILITATION AFTER ISCHEMIC STROKE, HEMORRHAGE

A multidisciplinary program that combines physical and rehabilitation medicine doctors, functional specialists, state-of-the-art robotic and physical medicine technologies to provide rehabilitation in case of ischemic stroke.

Ischemic stroke is a sudden brain injury due to a blockage in a blood vessel. It can cause disorders of motor functions, balance, coordination, cognitive abilities.

During rehabilitation, the following measures are being taken: assessment and documentation of the patient’s clinical condition and functional disorders, complication prevention, individual rehabilitation plan development, improvement of motor functions,  improvement of the gait stereotype, the balance and coordination response, education of the patient and his/her relatives, social integration, adaptation of assistive devices, providing recommendations and inclusion in the dynamic monitoring register.

Target group:

Patients with functional disorders at the age of 18 and over who are medically stable and for whom the potential and motivation for medical rehabilitation are assessed as sufficient.

The rehabilitation program objectives:

According to an individually developed medical rehabilitation plan.

ROBOTIC TECHNOLOGIES USED DURING THERAPY

AMADEO hand and finger rehabilitation system. Amadeo is a modern robotic trainer for the development of fine motor skills in the upper extremities – wrists and fingers, used in neurorehabilitation and traumatology. With this device, it is possible to perform effective training even in the very early stage of rehabilitation (just after a stroke with no or minimal functions), as well as to document the progress of treatment. Amadeo® is unique in that it is the only device that allows to restore active movement in all fingers.

RehaCom is a computerized program for cognitive function training. Developed in collaboration with doctors, therapists and scientists, it is currently the most widely used method for training cognitive functions in Europe. RehaCom is an evidence-based, clinically validated and safe method for assessing and improving cognitive abilities.

PABLO is a modern device for the correction of small and large motor skills in the upper extremities of the body. With this device it is possible to assess (diagnose) the functional possibilities of the upper extremities of the body both before the start of rehabilitation and during the rehabilitation process. The training is performed using interactive programs.
