The needs of patients are continually evolving just as the aging population continues to grow. Advancements in neurological rehabilitation help top facilities keep the best talent and optimize outcomes in the face of increasing stroke events.
A delicate balance
For neurorehabilitation therapy, there is a delicate balance between available resources and their ever-increasing demand. As demographics change and the global population ages, the healthcare system faces an even heavier economic burden. Experts estimate that stroke rates in Europe will increase by 30% by the year 20501. Improved acute care translates to a growing need for rehab. Limited time with a therapist and a shrinking work force translates to a significant gap in rehabilitation needs versus the availability of care.
