What is telerehabilitation?
Telerehabilitation is to provide a consultation by a neurologist, speech and language therapy, cognitive training, movement therapy and nutritional counselling via digital channels in using direct and individual therapist-to-patient interaction (video conference therapy) or self-training.
Both settings are assisted by digital training and measurement devices that help us find out about your problem and deficit and show you your progress. The therapy plan is designed by our neurologists and therapists based on a video consultation with you.
Why should you start telerehabilitation now?
In times of COVID-19, related travel restrictions and safety concerns, our telerehabilitation service offering will help you to continue your recovery in the comfort and safety of your home ensuring seamless assistance and medical care. Patients with neurological disorders need continuous therapy to continue to improve or to prevent deterioration. This can best be provided in the home environment these days using telerehabilitation services because the therapist can be virtually present at home and work with the patient like in a one-on-one therapy session.
How do patients benefit from our new telerehabilitation services?
The cereneo telerehabilitation services are unique and are built on the experiences and knowledge we have gathered from working with stroke patients for many years and the insights we gained in our research centre. We have transferred the cereneo rehabilitation concept from our clinic to the digital channels of telerehabilitation offering a personalised service with one-on-one patient therapist interaction. Family members can still be involved in supporting the patient during an online therapy session.
Every patient will benefit from the interdisciplinary assessment from our neurologists, speech- and language therapists, movement therapists, nutrition experts and neuropsychologists supported by a dedicated digital team to include latest tech trends into our telerehabilitation therapy. The tool that we use to perform online therapy with - ALVE - is super easy-to-use, user-friendly and safe. Patients only need a stable internet connection and a laptop or tablet (iPad).
