Iris Jakob, Co-President of IISART (International Industry Society for Advanced Rehabilitation Technology) & Scientific Coordinator for Tyromotion visits MOTIONrehab.

MOTIONrehab is very pleased to be finally able to welcome Iris Jakob to both of our International Reference Centres offering Robotic Led Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation.

Over the last 3 and half years, since MOTIONrehab launched the UK’s first Robotics-led Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centre, MOTIONrehab have supported IISART and Tyromotion, presenting at a number of International Rehabilitation Conferences and contributing to ‘Expert Panel Discussions’ including at The World Congress of Neurorehabilitation 2020 and RehabWeek 2021.

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 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 private hospitals/clinics such 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 neuroplasticity and achieving better outcomes quicker than traditional hand-on therapy alone.

To book an assessment at one of MOTIONrehab’s Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centres, please call MOTIONrehab’s Client Services Team on 0800 8600 138 or email: [email protected]
