Legal notes

INTRODUCTION

The physician in charge has the sole medical responsibility for a rehabilitation treatment and decides whether a patient is fit for a specific treatment. In particular, the physician must weigh in each individual case possible risks and side-effects of the treatment against the expected benefit. In addition, the patient’s individual situation plays just as important a role as the basic risk assessment for specific patient groups. The person in charge of using the system is responsible to adapt the training sessions and the course of therapy to the patient’s abilities.

Being a scientific discipline, medicine is subject to constant advances of knowledge and treatment principles. The physician in charge must continually keep his knowledge up-to-date by reading the latest scientific literature and must monitor changes in use recommendations during the course of treatment.
