As one of the world's leading clinics and research institutes in the field of neurorehabilitation, we have found a way to provide supervised interprofessional neurorehabilitation online. We have developed a flexible and tailored telerehabilitation solution using the latest technology to support patients at home.
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 therapist patient interaction.
What is telerehabilitation?
Telerehabilitation is the delivery of speech and language therapy, cognitive training and movement therapy via digital channels in using either 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 telereha 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 prevent deterioration of functioning. 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.
Regular interprofessional meetings
All data and therapist experience with the patient will be discussed in regular interprofessional meetings with participating neurologists, therapists and nurses. This will help to monitor the progress and optimise the therapy plan. This continuous adjustment based on objective data will provide you with the maximum improvement and is the heart of the cereneo therapy concept, for our inpatient as well as telerehabilitation service.
Every patient will benefit from the interdisciplinary assessment from our neurologists, speech- and physiotherapist, nutrition experts and neuropsychologists supported by a dedicated digital team to include latest tech trends into our telerehabilitation therapy. All aspects of Neurology are covered.
