Comprehensive rehabilitation to restore mobility

With multidisciplinary training designed for each patient and innovative technologies, such as functional electrostimulation devices that complement conventional therapy, TrainFES seeks comprehensive rehabilitation in cases such as stroke, spinal cord injury or cerebral palsy, among others.

Health problems such as neurological or spinal cord injuries, strokes or cerebral palsy, among others, can affect the mobility of the body and thus have serious consequences for the daily life of patients and their families.among others, can affect the mobility of the body and thus have serious consequences for the daily lives of patients and their families.

According to data from the Ministry of Healththe second leading cause of mortality in Chile in 2021 was stroke. cerebrovascular accident (CVA)This disease, which when not fatal, leaves a third of those who suffer it with some type of permanent disability.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 2.4 billion people on the planet have a condition that could have a condition that could be improved with proper rehabilitation, which requires the commitment of each patient and the support of different medical professionals.which requires the commitment of each patient and the support of different medical professionals. In this sense, comprehensive rehabilitation is fundamental.

What is comprehensive rehabilitation?

In accordance with Article 21 of Law No. 20,422, the comprehensive rehabilitation is the set of actions and measures that seek to ensure that people with disabilities reach their maximum maximum rehabilitation potentialto greater independence in their essential activities of daily living and the reinsertion of some into society.

Thanks to a set of procedures developed by healthcare experts, patients affected by injury or disease can regain movement, independence and, most importantly, quality of life.

The Journal of Neurology of Barcelona defines neurorehabilitation as a complex care process aimed at restoring, minimizing or compensating as far as possible the functional deficits that appear in the person affected by a serious disability as a result of a central nervous system lesion.

In order to seek the rehabilitation, is key to stimulation of neuroplasticity. That is, the neuronal relearning of lost movements by other brain cells.

 

New Call-to-action

 

The advantages of comprehensive rehabilitation

The two main objectives of the comprehensive rehabilitation are to recover the highest possible degree of independence and to improve the activation and functionality of the limbs, which provides the following benefits to people affected by motor paralysis:

  • Stimulation of the remaining musculature (that which is not injured), together with functional exercises to achieve correct learning.
  • Improves cardiovascular endurance to increase the contractile capacity of the heart by activating paralyzed muscles.
  • Activation of muscles with some degree of paralysis, associated with functions. This allows to achieve a better stimulation and to make new neuronal connections, by means of or through neuroplasticity. 
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation, with the objective of optimizing and recovering genitourinary and sexual functions, controlling spasticity (tense and rigid muscles) and increasing tone, as well as activation and sensitivity. 

 

Functional electrostimulation

In Chile, there is a proprietary technology created by TrainFES that enables functional electrostimulation (FES), a non-invasive and painless therapeutic technique that uses low-level electrical currents to stimulate paralyzed or weakened muscles.

By combining different training routines with functional electrical stimulation, neuromuscular relearning of healthy neurons is encouraged, with the aim of recovering motor functions that were lost due to the lack of connection between the brain and muscles through the central nervous system.

 

Functional training and multidisciplinary therapy

TrainFES presents a technology that has a mobile electrostimulation device and an application to configure on the phone or tablet, with a customized model that emphasizes the telerehabilitation.

With it, it is possible to do up to 10 times more effective therapies than with a conventional method, so the recovery potential is the same or better than in a face-to-face session.

In order to achieve a comprehensive comprehensive rehabilitationthe system includes a multidisciplinary approach with an emphasis on functional training and functional trainingThe system includes a multidisciplinary approach that emphasizes functional training, fundamental in the prescription of therapeutic exercise for patients with neurological, cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal disorders.

Functional training is not a simple repetition of exercises, but requires the ideation of the movement by the personalized training methodology, the user, his commitment and active participation. In this way, the best therapeutic results are achieved.

Comprehensive rehabilitation and the therapeutic benefits of multidisciplinary therapy

The evaluation of specialists in kinesiology, physiatry or phonoaudiology allows us to determine the the treatment indicated for each person, according to the injury, with specific exercises in addition to the FES device, which stimulates the target muscles with its electrodes.

The main diagnoses treated in TrainFES are pathologies related to motor paralysis, such as stroke, spinal cord injury and cerebral palsy, although it is also possible to achieve the following integral rehabilitation can also be achieved -prior analysis on a case-by-case basis- in people with neurodegenerative diseases or traumatic brain injury.

The interdisciplinary approach seeks the recovery of movement and motor function with kinesiology as a basis. with kinesiology as a base. But in cases such as cerebral palsy, prior evaluation depending on the needs of each patient, they can complement their rehabilitation with other alternatives such as nutritional therapy, hydrotherapy or aquatic therapy and behavioral therapy.

All plans include training, daily training schedules, support and periodic follow-ups that facilitate their implementation remotely or in person at the TrainFES rehabilitation center, located in Las Condes, Metropolitan Region.

 

Recovering mobility: how TrainFES helps in comprehensive rehabilitation

With more than 3,000 people treated and a multidisciplinary team of 40 health experts, TrainFES is the best option for the recovery of pathologies related to motor paralysis, thanks to an innovation that seeks tothanks to an innovation that seeks the integral rehabilitation with technology and personalized functional training.

TrainFES' unique telerehabilitation solution, based on functional electrostimulation, ensures the best therapeutic results for those who wish to regain mobility or improve their quality of life.

The system also provides benefits in terms of muscle reactivation, increased strength and endurance, improved coordination and motor control, prevention of muscle atrophy and stimulation of the circulatory system.
