Project description

Neuron has for two decades been involved in inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation of people with psychomotor dysfunctions, including children, athletes and adults who need to regain functions lost or impaired due to illness, accident, surgery or injury. Under this project we are planning to introduce an innovative rehabilitation service provided by means of an exoskeleton powered by lower limbs and a tilt table with a stepping device. These types of solutions address the needs of people whose motor skills are significantly reduced due to accidents or severe neurological diseases - these people are unable to recover on their own or through traditional rehabilitation. Market research shows that in Poland the supply of rehabilitation services using exoskeleton and upright standing table is not sufficient - there are far more disabled persons ready to undertake such rehabilitation than the available services. Apart from purchasing the above-mentioned devices, we will establish cooperation with a research unit which will help us develop functional documentation, pilot the implementation of the service, train our staff, and develop methods and guidelines for quality assessment of rehabilitation processes. Neuron will provide services using exoskeletons and standing tables during rehabilitation holidays (8-14 days) in one of our rehabilitation centers in the picturesque village of Małe Gacno (north of Poland).
