THE NEUROLOGICAL REHAB PROGRAM :–

A neurological rehab program is designed to meet your individual needs, depending on your specific problem or disease. Active involvement of you and your family is vital to the success of the program.

The goal of neurological rehab is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life – physically, emotionally and socially and to help reach these goals, neurological rehab programs may include:

  • Help with activities of daily living (ADL), such as eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, handwriting, cooking, and basic housekeeping
  • Speech therapy to help with speaking, reading, writing or swallowing
  • Stress, anxiety and depression management
  • Bladder and bowel retraining
  • Activities to improve mobility (movement), muscle control, gait (walking), and balance
  • Exercise programs to improve movement, prevent or decrease weakness caused by lack of use, manage spasticity and pain and maintain range of motion
  • Social and behavioral skills retraining
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Involvement in community support groups
  • Activities to improve cognitive impairments, such as problems with concentration, attention, memory and poor judgment
  • Help with obtaining assistive devices that promote independence
  • Education and counseling
  • Safety and independence measures and home care needs
  • Pain management
  • Stress management and emotional support
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Vocational counseling

ADVANCED EQUIPMENT & THERAPEUTIC OPTIONS AVAILABLE AT VIMHANS

Walnut Medical Walkex is an advanced neuroprostheses 

FES & WALKEX:-The Walnut Medical Walkex is an advanced neuroprostheses designed to help patients with neurological conditions accelerate their rehabilitation process and walk with improved balance and gait. Clinical evidence suggests that the Walnut Medical Walkex may significantly improve gait speed, symmetry and stride, and reduce falls. The Walkex accelerates recovery time to knee locking and reduces the overall rehabilitation time period of a hemiparetic patient. Delivering low-level electronic stimulation to the nerve to enable foot dorsiflexion and accelerate motor recovery in addition to stimulation provided for quadriceps and hamstring, the system is small in size and easy to use. Unlike a rigid, uncomfortable ankle-foot orthosis (AFO), patients can wear the Walnut Medical Walkex under most clothing and with most shoes. The Walnut Medical Walkex may help your patients regain natural function for foot drop associated with:

1.Traumatic brain injury
2.Stroke
3.Spinal injury sequelae
4.Multiple sclerosis
5.Cerebral Palsy

VIHBRA is a virtual intelligent platform for motor rehabilitation of persons with disabilities

VIBHRA:-VIHBRA is a virtual intelligent platform for motor rehabilitation of persons with disabilities. It combines experience from virtual reality and knowledge from machine intelligence to enhance neural reorganization that optimize the physical rehabilitation outcomes in individuals with disability. It provides stimulating sensory feedback to promote motor learning and encompasses tools that help to understand the biology of disability. The system integrates a Walnut Medical Intelligent smart camera sensor with depth measurement capabilities and Walnut Medical Balance Board to improve balance and neuromuscular functions, in collaboration with advanced algorithms running on a high end computing device. Quantification of motor disability is done through presenting the individuals with situations/tasks that require use of groups of muscles and body parts like an augmented rehabilitation measure such as Virtual Function Reach Test (Patented).

REPETITIVE TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION (rTMS) - NEUROMODULATION

TMS is a procedure in which cerebral electrical activity is influenced by a pulsed magnetic field. The magnetic field is generated by passing brief current pulses through a figure 8 coil. This coil is encased in plastic and is held close to the scalp so that the magnetic field can be focused onto specific areas of the cortex, or surface, of the brain.

The magnetic field that is generated in rTMS can penetrate the scalp and skull safely and painlessly to induce a current in specific regions of the brain. It is termed repetitive TMS, or rTMS, because the magnetic stimulation is delivered at regular intervals.

Many aspects of rTMS, referred to as stimulation parameters, can be changed. The ability to change parameters while directly targeting specific brain areas suggests that rTMS has valuable therapeutic potential.

This means that the delivery of rTMS therapy may be customized for each patient. It also suggests that rTMS may be used to elicit certain desired effects in the brain (i.e. excitatory or inhibitory effects) that have shown promise for treating various conditions or illnesses such as -
