We are looking forward to exhibiting at “1000 Reps – Increasing Intensity in Rehabilitation Workshop”, organised by the neurological rehabilitation team at Royal Bournemouth Hospital and the StrokeEd Collaboration. This event is being hosted in the UK for the first time at the Village Hotel in Bournemouth on 14th May (8:30am – 4:30pm). Get tickets here.

We will be representing our partner Hocoma at the workshop, where we will be showing how Hocoma‘s rehabilitation devices can improve functional movement therapy for upper and lower limb impairment. Clinical research and motor learning principles show that intensity matters. Hocoma devices bridge the gap between therapy demand and therapy resources, allowing intensive rehabilitation training in an effective and efficient way that benefits patients, therapists and hospital management.

The aim of the workshop is to recommend strategies which can increase the dosage and intensity of practise in inpatient, outpatient and community rehabilitation settings. The workshop is relevant to conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), amputation and hip fracture.

Topics will include:

  • How much practice is enough?
  • How can therapists increase patient motivation and involvement in practice?
  • How can therapists help coach patients with varying levels of motivation?

We look forward to meeting the physiotherapists, occupational therapists, health assistants and nursing professionals who will be attending.
