Patients with severe brain damage, especially in a coma, are kept in bed for a long time in order to maintain adequate cerebral blood flow, especially in the event of subarachnoid hemorrhage, or to avoid the risk of standing up.
However, a literature has shown the complications of prolonged bed rest and the benefit of mobilization in bed, out of bed and in an upright position. The results of our study in this area confirmed our hypothesis that early mobilization increases neurosensory input and improves consciousness recovery. In the case of severly affected patients, in the acute phase, robotics combined with traditional rehabilitation increase the effect of repetitive movements and verticalization.
In this webinar we will combine the neurophysiological context and clinical observations from a neurologis’s point of view as well as from a physical therapist’s point of view.
