Neuropsychologists look out for cognitive and  behavioural issues related to brain injury, stroke or other illnesses. They may recommend cognitive therapy, stress reduction techniques or other treatments.

Physical therapists are physiotherapists who help treat patients in pain,loss of strength, limited range of motion, imbalance or lack of coordination. Their target is to restore and maintain mobility.

Occupational therapists assess day to day activities such as eating, dressing, toileting and bathing. They focus on the independence of the patient.

Speech-language pathologists treat patients who have problems with speech and thinking skills. These problems are commonly observed among those who have had a stroke, brain injury or other problems in the nervous system. They also work closely with patients having difficulty in swallowing.

Therapeutic Recreation Specialists help patients pursue their hobbies or cater them to develop new interests.They provide resources for support and for community involvement that a patient can continue until they leave the hospital .

Technology in neuro Rehabilitation

Modern rehabilitation should follow a “3T” approach. This means Treatment – Technology – Translationality.

Following technology is used in present day neuro rehabilitation centres :

  • Robotic devices :Robots for neurorehabilitation are designed to support physical exercises to the upper and lower extremities, with the purpose of promoting neuro-motor recovery.
  • Non Invasive Brain simulation: NIBS techniques involve modulation of the central nervous system (CNS)by electrically activating neurons in the brain and are used to influence cortical excitability, neuroplasticity, and behaviour . Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial current stimulation are vivaciously used techniques.
  • Neural interfaces:A neural interface is essentially a system mediating the communication between the brain and an external device .
  • Exoskeletons: Portable exoskeletons have become a revolutionary device for gait rehabilitation.Exoskeletons are “wearable” systems that consist of a mechanical structure, electric motors, sensors, a computer and batteries.
  • Virtual Reality : virtual reality is a renowned tool that can assess virtual scenarios that can be used for motor rehabilitation.
