The award-winning neurological rehabilitation team at Neural Pathways have launched their brand new facility today, called The Neuro Hub.

The official opening of The Neuro Hub will include hands-on sessions with the rehabilitation technology they have to offer, including their newly installed Hocoma C-Mill VR treadmill.

The C-Mill VR is an innovative single-belt treadmill for the evaluation and training of impaired gait and balance. Using augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), acoustic cues and force plate technology, the C-Mill VR is the ideal solution for effective functional movement therapy. The C-Mill VR is suitable for paediatric, adult and geriatric patients requiring rehabilitation for any condition affecting gait, balance or stability. This includes fall prevention, stroke, brain injury, spinal injury, lower limb amputees, Parkinson’s Disease, movement disorders, cerebral palsy, and other neurological conditions.

This particular C-Mill VR model features an instrumented treadmill, augmented reality projections on the treadmill belt, a virtual reality screen, a safety harness, handrails, and a full suite of gait and balance applications. You can read more about the C-Mill VR on its product page.

The launch of The Neuro Hub follows one of Neural Pathways’ Innovations in Neuro Rehab Seminars, featuring expert talks such as “Pushing the Boundaries: the Case for Intensive Exercise” by Glyn Blakey, Specialist Neuro Physiotherapist and MD of Saebo UK Ltd.

Neural Pathways trialled the Hocoma ArmeoSenso upper limb rehabilitation device with their own patients earlier this year, read more.
