Christina was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2005. The disease affected her life only minimally. Under basic therapy in combination with lumbar ITT injections (a single dose of cortisone injected into the spinal cord by an anesthesiologist), she led the everyday life of an independent young woman for many years.
But then in 2019, the unexpected happened. An uncleanly performed ITT caused bacterial inflammation with multiple abscesses on Christina’s spine. These abscesses caused immense damage to tissue, bone and nerves. During an emergency surgery, the abscesses were removed, but Christina has been confined to a wheelchair since then.
This is the story of a woman who, under the circumstances, might have lost hope and motivation. This is the story of someone who trusted advanced technologies to get her life back.
After 6-months in rehab, she was prepared for a life in a wheelchair. She trained daily to develop the strength to sit up by herself, dress and live independently. To get to the next level, while doing conventional physiotherapy, wheelchair training and mental processing, she investigated more options to speed up the recovery and found the Hocoma products. She was sure the Lokomat, the world’s leading robotic rehabilitation device that provides highly repetitive and the most physiological movement training, would get her to the next level.
So Christina started looking for a clinic with a Lokomat and experienced therapists to accompany her. Revigo quickly showed up in her searches as the closest state-of-the-art outpatient therapy clinic, a place that helps patients achieve the results they want with a focus on advanced technologies. As a pioneer in adopting new technology-based solutions, Revigo therapists count on years of experience with robotic therapy.
Thanks to intensive and regular training with the Lokomat, Christina has managed to build up and strengthen important muscle groups. She finally remembered how it felt to walk and feel her weight in contact with the ground.
Today Christina can drive a car with automatic transmission and can walk about 30 meters with a rollator.
