A neurological rehabilitation period is begun with initial examinations by a doctor, a physiotherapist and a registered nurse. Individual physiotherapy (2 x 40 min) and occupational therapy (45 min) is included in neurological rehabilitation daily. In addition to exercise groups appropriate to the rehabilitee’s general condition and leisure activities, speech therapy may also be included according to the referral. The rehabilitee also receives a pedicure and an appointment with a social worker. At the end of the rehabilitation period, a doctor’s examination is performed and the results of the physiotherapy and occupational therapy are evaluated.
A professional team formulates a rehabilitation plan and follows its progress. Rehabilitative treatment is implemented round the clock at Kitinkannus.
Rehabilitation is realised by the multi-professional cooperation of doctors, registered nurses, practical nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers and, if necessary, speech therapists and psychologists.
With the help of operational therapeutic exercises, the objective of physiotherapy and occupational therapy is to restore the functional capacity of the rehabilitee to be fit for home care.
The facilities and exercise equipment of Kitinkannus® are well-suited for neurological rehabilitation. For example, we have a Lokomat® walking simulation robot, an H/P Cosmos body-weight-supported walking exercise machine, a BalanceTrainer for balance and standing position training, basic physiotherapy equipment, modern gym machines, a sports hall and therapy pool, as well as diverse equipment and facilities for occupational therapy.
Rehabilitees can take part in various structured leisure activities, lectures, exercise and discussion groups.
