How to recover functions in the face of neurological disorders

Difficulties in performing activities of daily living such as moving, speaking or even swallowing are the main consequences of neurological disorders, which limit people's independence and also affect the family environment responsible for providing support and accompaniment.

The The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NIH) notes that the points out that neurological neurological disorders occur when something malfunctions in a part of the nervous system, made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves, whose mission is to control all of the body's functions.

When something goes wrong in this vital network, the organism's fundamental capabilities such as movement, speech, swallowing or breathing are affected. such fundamental capabilities as movement, speech, swallowing or breathing are impaired.. There may also be problems with memory, senses or mood.

The prestigious Mayo Clinic suggests that a newer and more comprehensive term for this condition is functional neurological disorderThe Mayo Clinic states that a newer, broader term for this condition is functional neurological disorder, noting that sufferers have symptoms that cause considerable pain or problems in getting along in daily life.

The institution adds that this disorder affects movement or the senses, with effects that may be recurrent or persistent, and that these cannot be intentionally generated or controlled.

Major neurological disorders

There are more than 600 neurological diseasesThese include disorders resulting from cerebrovascular accident (CVA), spinal cord or brain injuries, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or ataxia.

The neuroplasticitywhich is the potential of the nervous system to modify itself and form connections in response to new information, is key to a rehabilitation strategy for sufferers of these disorders.

Thus, a correct methodology must be based on continuous training, with a high therapeutic load that promotes neuroplasticity and motor learning.

With this premise as a pillar, TrainFES proposes a new standard of rehabilitation for people with neurological disorders.with a neurorehabilitation methodology unique in the world that, in addition to face-to-face sessions, allows them to train every day at home.

This telerehabilitation option allows the user to maintain the continuity of exercises that is crucial to the process, where he will have a multidisciplinary team that monitors and supports the progress. In addition, the program includes the training of the patient, his family or caregivers, to obtain the maximum potential results.

Among the disorders that can be treated with TrainFES include:

  • Spinal cord injury: Functional electrostimulation treatment achieves functional motor relearning through the coordinated activation of paralyzed muscle groups. This helps physical conditioning and avoids forced sedentary lifestyle.
  • Stroke: Functional electrostimulation treatment with high-quality, easy-to-use models allow you to work with up to six muscles simultaneously and coordinate them to generate functional movement patterns..
  • Cerebral palsy: TrainFES is a enhancer of traditional physical therapy and its methodology serves to train gait, muscle synergies (such as cycling or rowing), reach and grip synergies. In addition, it helps muscle strengthening and activation of paralyzed muscles.
  • Neurodegenerative diseases: In the case of pathologies such as Parkinson'sParkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis multiple sclerosis (MS)Multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or ataxiaThe program and the support of kinesiologists, occupational therapists and speech therapists contribute to the recovery of mobility and gait, reduction of spasticity, muscle strengthening, prevention of atrophy, improvement of circulation and cardiovascular function and pain relief, among others.

Differences between neurological disorder and trauma

As we saw earlier, neurological neurological disorders are related to the central nervous system and their symptoms can vary, since it controls many different bodily functions.

These include all types of pain (also headache and back pain), weakness or loss of muscle coordination, alterations in skin sensitivity and disorders of vision, taste, smell and hearing.

Neurological injuries differ from musculoskeletal injuries. musculoskeletalwhich occur due to trauma and include trauma and include bone fractures or joint dislocations, sprains of bones or joint dislocations, sprains, strains, ligament tears or tendon lacerations.

Fractures happen when too much force is put on a bone, which may chip, crack or break. Muscles, blood vessels, nerves, tendons, joints and other organs can also be injured when a fracture occurs.

Treatment of musculoskeletal injuries may involve reduction (manually putting the bone back into the correct position), immobilization (maintaining alignment until the bone heals) and rehabilitation (restoring normal functioning of the injured part), always with the goal of returning the person to normal activities. to return to normal activities as soon as possible. as soon as possible.

Benefits of TrainFES therapy for neurological disorders

As it is a unique neurorehabilitation methodology in the world, combining dailythat combines daily training with innovative technologies, TrainFES is the best option for patients with neurological disorderswho can obtain the best therapeutic results in less time thanks to the continuity of treatment.

The program includes a mobile functional electrostimulation device (FES), which stimulates the (FES), which stimulates the nervous system with mild, painless electrical currents that generate coordinated muscle contractions, facilitating training at home.

In addition to this, there is an application for your phone or tablet, TrainFES Rehabwhich allows the exercises to be performed autonomously on a daily basis, maintaining therapeutic continuity by always being connected to a specialist.

neurological disorders

In addition, an inertial inertial motion sensor synchronizes the electrostimulation with daily life tasks, which acts as biofeedback and acts as a biofeedback and promotes neurorehabilitationby evoking functional movements, it enhances neuronal plasticity.

In this way, TrainFES allows up to 10 times more effective therapies to be performed than with a conventional method, with a recovery potential equal to or greater than in a conventional program.

With a multidisciplinary team of 40 experts in kinesiology, physiatry, occupational therapy, phonoaudiology and psychology, TrainFES kinesiology, physiatry, occupational therapy, phonoaudiology and psychology, TrainFES has treated more than 3,000 people with various motor problems, thanks to its comprehensive rehabilitation program that combines technology with technology and support throughout the process throughout the process that will lead them to recover their mobility.
