Neurorehabilitation is a complex medical process which aims to aid recovery from a nervous system injury, and to minimize and/or compensate for any functional alterations resulting from it. In case of a serious disability, such as caused by a severe spinal injury or brain damage, the patient and their families’ abilities, life style, and projects, are suddenly shattered. In order to cope with this situation, the person and their family must establish and negotiate a “new way of living”, both with their changed viagra pas cher body and as a changed individual within their wider community. Conditions normally treated by neurorehabiliation includes:

  • Stroke recovery
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Brain injury
  • Multiple sclerosis

Over the last decade with the aid of science and technology, we are more familiar with the human brain and its function than ever before. Recently, research has shifted to a new application of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems which is its use for rehabilitation purposes. In our lab, we are working on these BCI systems to improve the voluntary movements which had been lost due to disease. Additionally, the use of robotics in neuro-rehabilitation is becoming more and more common. So, these devices and simulations, along with other robotic technology, are being developed in HSL which will offer patients who have just had strokes, other brain or spinal cord injuries, the option of training and physical therapy much sooner than might otherwise be possible, thus shortening the recovery period.
