ROBOTIC REHABILITATION

It constitutes the most comprehensive and advanced robotic rehabilitation department in Greece.

Lokomat

The LOKOMAT Robotic system is a gait therapy device with robotic gait orthosis that comprises of a support system at the hips and two robotic lower extremities that are individually adapted to each lower extremity. It works in conjunction with a special treadmill and a body weight support system. The LOKOMAT system is digitally controlled via a computer.

Treatment with the LOKOMAT system is based on long-term research conducted by university clinics with the help of IT specialists, engineers and electrophysiologists and is currently the most modern rehabilitation therapy. With the support of the LOKOMAT, patients learn to walk again by using two therapeutic methods (repetition and targeted training). This targeted form of treatment has been established to rehabilitate a wide range of neuromuscular disorders and spinal cord injuries. Thus, the patient walks with a normal gait right away, thus minimizing the rehabilitation time.

Patients suffering from the following conditions can take advantage of treatment with the LOKOMAT:

  • Spinal Injury
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy

 

Erigo

The ERIGO device is a robotic platform that fully controls the mechanism of leg motion using special computers. It supports and facilitates the mobilization of bedridden patients, by contributing to the prevention of secondary complications, which are caused by a prolonged period of immobility (e.g. thrombophlebitis, orthostatic hypotension, lower extremities stiffness, etc.). ERIGO allows patients to come into a vertical position (90 degrees), while the lower extremities move in a normal cyclic movement operated with electronically regulated resistance via a touchscreen. Contrary to Erigo, exercise using a conventional non-robotic tilt table is a standard treatment that does not protect the patient from secondary complications in the early mobilization phase of neurological patients (sensorimotor injury).

Patients suffering from the following conditions can take advantage of treatment with ERIGO for their early mobilization:

  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spinal Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Traumatic Brain Injury

 

ISOKINETIC DYNAMOMETRY - ERGOMETRIC

Our center is equipped with the most technologically advanced robot device using isokinetic dynamometry (Biodex system pro4).
Our center is equipped with the most technologically advanced robot device using isokinetic dynamometry (Biodex system pro4).
Used to evaluate the musculoskeletal system, but also perfect recovery after orthopedic interventions, sports injuries, neuromuscular disorders. It is also used by sports clubs to evaluate their athletes’ musculoskeletal condition. It is the first one to be used in the Peloponnese.

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT

The patient with stroke, spinal cord injuries or other serious conditions that cause motor weakness, functional difficulty with similar psychological burden, needs immediate intensive psychological support.
The patient with stroke, spinal cord injuries or other serious conditions that cause motor weakness, functional difficulty with similar psychological burden, needs immediate intensive psychological support.
Something that is almost never done, because it is overshadowed by his/her medical problem.
In the Department of Psychological Support, our psychologist evaluates the patients' current mental state - behavior, emotion, cognitive functions - and his/her personality and provides ongoing support to the patients and their families, respectively. Additionally, the psychologist acts as an interface and supports the Diaplasis rehabilitation personnel.

 

NUTRICION AND DIETETICS

Dietetics is a modern and constantly evolving health science, which emerged from the various pathological conditions resulting from an unbalanced diet and require a dietary approach and management.
Dietetics is a modern and constantly evolving health science, which emerged from the various pathological conditions resulting from an unbalanced diet and require a dietary approach and management.

In a clinical setting, the science of Dietetics is called upon to adapt the patient's meals to his/her needs, which stem from the condition of his/her health and nutrition.
Upon admission to the Diaplasis Rehabilitation and Recovery Center, the patient’s swallowing ability is assessed. The dietitian, in collaboration with the speech therapist, determine the texture of the patient’s food to ensure his/her safety during the feeding and drinking process.
The nutritional assessment is then carried out for the purpose of creating the nutritional reference. The nutritional reference aims to meet the patient’s energy and nutrient needs depending on the nutritional state, but also to provide a proper nutrition based on underlying conditions and preferences.

Goals:

  • The achievement of a diet that is adequate in energy and nutritional ingredients.
  • To reach a healthy weight (addressing the underweight, overweight or obese patient).
