Maximising outcomes using advanced technology in Neurological Rehabilitation.
This presentation will look at the existing evidence on the use of Technology in Neurological Rehabilitation and how this can be integrated into practice to maximise intensity and recovery outcomes. It will also use clinical examples and experience to illustrate how these devices can be integrated into the Rehabilitation Pathway.
Examples will include various devices such as the Erigo, Lokomat, Armeo, Indego Exoskeleton and various upper and lower limb FES devices.
