It is widely recognised that technology can make a significant difference in the recovery of individuals following a stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury or other neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s.
Why does Rehab Technology work?
- The brain has the ability to form and reorganize synaptic connections, both functionally and physically in response to new learning or therapy following an injury to its brain cells.
- Therefore, individuals have the chance to recover after experiencing a traumatic brain injury.
- However, the brain forms new connections better when the task that is being performed has functional and meaningful goals. This is because repetitively performing a certain motion or task mindlessly does not help the patient progress or form new synaptic connections in the brain.
- Instead, research shows that the more time a patient dedicates to therapy with functional goals in mind, the stronger the synapses and faster re-organization of the brain can be achieved.
