The level of a patient's recovery after different neurological illnesses or injuries depends on the amount of activation of the brain's neuroplasticity.
The level of a patient's recovery after different neurological illnesses or injuries depends on the amount of activation of the brain's neuroplasticity. Brain neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change, reorganize, make new nerve cells and new connections between the existing ones, as a response to the damage that has been made. In that way, neurons that are situated around the damaged one take over its functions, leading the patient to a better recovery. The best way to activate the neuroplasticity is with high intensity training.
Neurorehabilitation with robotics provides an efficient and motivating high intensity and high frequency training and encourages the neuroplasticity much stronger than the classical approach to rehabilitation.
Neurorehabilitation has the most important role in this process because, by encouraging the reorganization of the nervous system, it provides the return of functionality of the patient's body as much as possible.
With the combination of intensive training and repetition that neurorehabilitation with robotics provides, it is proved that the patient accomplishes sensational results in the improvement of the overall health condition, for it encourages brain activity and, in fact, trains the brain.
In neurorehabilitation, thanks to the brain neuroplasticity, there is no going backwards, because the functions return permanently, since the change is not made in the perifery (on the extremity), but on the brain. Therefore, there will be no steps backwards.
Neurorehabilitation with robotics enables a faster recovery, faster comeback to an independent life, it contributes to the patient's motivation for progress, both during the rehabilitation and in the everyday life.
Neurorehabilitation with robotics pushes the limits of possible.
