Neurological Rehabilitation is a formal method for the therapeutic treatment of patients with stroke or spinal cord injury, which develop severe sequelae that affect their motor and sensory abilities. Although the Central Nervous System has flexibility mechanisms for natural recovery, a high percentage of patients should receive specific therapies to regain motor function, such as Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy or Upright physical Therapy.
The neurorehabilitation has undergone severe changes due to the incorporation of computer and robotic electronic devices, designed to produce positive changes in cortical excitability of the cerebral hemisphere injured and so to improve neuroplasticity.
Commonly treated conditions:
· Stroke recovery
· Cerebral palsy
· Parkinson's disease
· Multiple sclerosis
· Post-polio syndrome
· Guillain–Barré syndrome
Equipment’s used for Neurological Rehabilitation:
· Electrotherapy Devices
· Apparatus for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
· Neuroprosthesis and Brain-Computer Interfaces
· The Robotic Lower Limb Orthoses
· Robot for Upper Limb Training
· Systems for Functional Electrical Stimulation
Benefits of Neurorehabilitation:
· Focus on Improving the Overall Quality of Life
· Individualized, Patient-Centered Care
· Better Health Outcomes
· Incorporation of Many Disciplines
· Potential Savings
The purpose of Neurorehabilitation technologies is to take advantage of the useful neuromuscular structures preserved, and they compensate or re-learn the functions that previously made the damaged areas.
