Following Clinical Director, Sarah Daniel’s lecture in Blansko, Czech Republic in September 2019, MOTIONrehab had the pleasure of welcoming Dr Šarka Daňková, Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine and Physiotherapist, Iva Fiedorová from the University Hospital Ostrava, in the Czech Republic this week. 

The visit to MOTIONrehab’s International Reference Centre enabled our European colleagues to gain a greater understanding into the MOTIONrehab’s Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation programmes augmented with robotics, VR and sensor-based devices.

MOTIONrehab’s Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centre based in Leeds is the UK’s first Intensive Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation facility augmented by Robotics and Virtual Reality. The centre includes a range of upper and lower limb robotics and virtual reality technology. The MOTIONrehab centre is the only location within UK with all of these particular devices, giving the clinic International Reference Centre Status for treatment, teaching and research.

The MOTIONrehab concept offers patients specialist one to one hands-on therapy from experienced and highly skilled clinicians. Uniquely, MOTIONrehab clients 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 neuro-plasticity and the optimisation of outcomes.

This was a great opportunity to share ideas and approaches to neurological rehabilitation with our international colleagues. Dr Daňková and her colleague, Iva, have gained valuable experience working with the MOTIONrehab staff and seen first-hand how our innovative approach to therapy, implementing evidence-based practice optimises the outcomes of our clients.
