From increasing remote care to taking sanitary precautions to keep the spaces clean, these are just some of the steps the rehabilitation centre has taken.
Patients who are diagnosed with some type of neurological damage cannot stop their therapies at any moment, because it could mean a strong setback in their treatment. For this reason, TrainFES has taken a series of precautions so that people with reduced mobility can continue with their rehabilitation, either from home or, if necessary, with all the precautions at TrainFES center.
The center is fully supportive of quarantine and all non-critical professionals are working from home. Currently, the institution is working on finding a way to perform all stages of treatment remotely, but much of the TrainFES system can already be performed at home. This is achieved after patient training.
The following measures have been implemented at TrainFES center:
First, all patients already in treatment will be followed up virtually, thus minimizing the flow of people in the center. Secondly, new users will be able to receive remote evaluations starting March 23. And, if strictly necessary, they will be able to opt to do them in person, but with the following precautions:
Prior to any evaluation, patients will be informed that they will not not are not being attended:
-persons with coronavirus-related symptoms.
-who have been in possible contact with potential carriers
-who do not respect quarantine
For TrainFES it is very important to safeguard the health of its patients and collaborators, which is why they are already working on the implementation of a remote evaluation program, which promises to comply with all that the government is demanding in the global health scenario.
TrainFES center prioritizes the recovery of its users with the necessary safeguards and precautions to prevent further spread. With these measures it is expected that in turn, patients will be able to continue working on their training from home.
The ability to use functional adaptation mechanisms to minimize damage after injury, as well as the ability to acquire new knowledge even at very advanced ages, make brain plasticity a unique and useful feature in rehabilitation.
The sequelae that neurological disorders cause in people are usually severe, with effects on the quality of life of the patient and those around him. But when this condition occurs in older adults, the consequences can deepen and lead to disability.
The objective of the treatments is to achieve or recover the capacity for independent living, which is the state that allows a person to make decisions, perform acts autonomously and participate actively in the community, in exercise of the right to free development of the personality.
