In January 2018 MOTIONrehab® are launching the UK’s first Intensive Outpatient & Residential Neurological Rehabilitation Facility augmented by Robotics and Virtual Reality. The Centre of Excellence, based in Leeds, will include a range of upper and lower limb robotics and virtual reality technology. The MOTIONrehab® centre will be the only location within Europe to combine these particular devices under one roof, giving the clinic International Reference Centre Status for treatment, teaching and research.
The new concept offers patients specialist one to one hands-on therapy from experienced and highly skilled clinicians. Uniquely, MOTIONrehab® clients will also spend time training with the robotic and virtual reality devices individually and in groups. This allows patients to practice high repetitions of movements, which is critical to neuroplasticity and the optimisation of outcomes.
