MOTIONrehab Intensive Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation Centres in Morley, Leeds and Hull.
MOTIONrehab launched the UK’s first Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation centre augmented with Robotics and Virtual Reality technology in April 2018. MOTIONrehab was quickly recognised by the Financial Times, Google and leading European policy makers for technological innovation, its role in leading digital change, and in challenging an industry sector with a disruptive business model in the field of rehabilitation on ‘Europe’s Road to Growth list’. Following the success that patients were seeing at the Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centre in Leeds, MOTIONrehab decided to expand its services and open a second Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centre at its clinic in Hull, in December 2020.
Both centres include a range of upper and lower limb robotics and virtual reality technology. The MOTIONrehab centres were the first in the UK with these these particular devices, giving the clinic International Reference Centre Status for treatment, teaching and research. Since April 2018, MOTIONrehab have been opening their doors to other rehabilitation facilities from around the world as well as supporting NHS and privates hospitals/clinics such as Circle Health Birmingham to implement Intensive Robotics led rehabilitation to help improve neurological rehabilitation services across the UK.
Upon accessing our centres, MOTIONrehab clients receive a detailed assessment by our team of Specialist Neurological Physiotherapists. MOTIONrehab centres offers its patients specialist one-to-one hands-on therapy from experienced and highly skilled clinicians. MOTIONrehab clients also spend time training with the robotic, sensor based and virtual reality devices. This allows our patients to practice high repetitions of movement which is critical to neuro-plasticity and achieving better outcomes quicker than traditional hand-on therapy alone.
What Is Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation?
The human brain is amazing! It is a highly organised and extremely skilled ͚computer͛ that manages and controls all aspects of human movement and behaviour. Scientists and clinicians have known for years that certain parts of the brain are dedicated to certain functions. This is especially true when it comes to movement and activities. We also know that the more you repeat or practice a movement the bigger the area of the brain dedicated to that movement becomes…Practise makes perfect!
This ability to learn and re-shape the brain and nervous system is called ‘neuroplasticity’. For re-learning to take place movements need to be repeated and practiced just as you would expect when learning to play a musical instrument or a new sport. This re-shaping and forming new connections in the brain happens throughout our lifetime. After injury or illness to the nervous system there is a window of opportunity where the brain reorganises itself at a rapid rate to compensate for the damaged areas. It is commonly believed this is in the first 2 years or so, after this time the brain continues to make new connections, only at a slower rate.
So Why Is Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Important?
After injury or illness of the brain or spinal cord the aim of rehabilitation is to promote the re-wiring of the nervous system (neuroplasticity) to re-learn the lost or damaged movements. The role of Neurological Physiotherapy aims to help individual͛s relearn the lost or impaired movements. However, the key to adopting the newly learnt movements is practice.
It is therefore crucial that individuals have an opportunity to repeat and practice movement to cement the new connections. This is difficult to achieve with traditional physiotherapy and exercise alone! Increasingly over the last decade or so Rehabilitation Technology has provided the means for mass practise and repetition of movements. MOTIONrehab’s Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation centres with its Robotics-Led rehabilitation is able to provide truly high repetition rehabilitation essential for the optimisation of outcomes and a quicker recovery.
Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation enables you to reach your full potential quicker.
MOTIONrehab’s Intensive Rehabilitation Programmes includes 80 hours of neurological rehabilitation over 4-7 weeks dependant on the outcome of your assessment. MOTIONrehab recognise that everybody is different and may come to us at different stages of their rehabilitation. Therefore, MOTIONrehab have three Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation options and you will be advised which is the most clinically appropriate for you following your assessment.
