Neurological prerehabilitation rehabilitation - Our Team

Neurological prerehabilitation rehabilitation

The sooner the better - step by step

Our patients' biggest wish is to return to their everyday lives following a serious neurological illness. With our early rehabilitation, we help this wish to come true and we work as soon as possible on a daily basis with our patients. After all, the sooner we begin, the better it is for you. It is a journey of small steps, steps that we take along with you and your relatives.

Team work is the key in neurological rehabilitation

Our treatment specialisms

Your rehabilitation process forms the central point of interdisciplinary work by nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, neuropsychologists and speech and swallowing therapists under the guidance of the consultant looking after you. At weekly team meetings, we define your next goals and specific areas of treatment. Our interdisciplinary team will take very special, individual care of you.

The start of the rehab process usually involves breathing, swallowing and speech therapy with the aim of weaning you off the tracheal tube / tracheal cannula or PEG. This is then followed by mobilisation out of bed and standing and walking training through to occupational therapy, which helps you to practice activities of daily living such as washing, showering and getting dressed and undressed.

Our treatment services at a glance:

  • Swallowing therapy - Eating and drinking keep body and soul together
  • Speech and language therapy – being able to communicate with others again
  • Physiotherapy - Moving again with new-found strength
  • Occupational therapy - Learning to take over everyday activities again
  • Neuropsychology - Creating awareness and concentration on the essentials
  • Physical therapy - Stimulation of the body
  • Care therapy to train simple everyday skills

Paraplegia ward

Becoming as independent as possible

On our specialist paraplegia ward, we regard paraplegia not as a secondary condition to a neurological disease or accident, but rather focus specifically on it in the context of a multi-disciplinary team. Our consultants, care providers and therapists are specialists in the treatment of paraplegic patients. Our primary objective in this is to help you become as independent as possible - by retaining existing resources and possibly initiating and training new skills. You can also benefit from specialist treatment services and mutual exchange.

Paraplegia requires special knowledge

Our care providers on the paraplegia ward have specialist knowledge on positioning and mobilisation, continence and physical care. Alongside the team of neurological consultants, we also have a neuro-urologist. We adjust all treatments to best suit your needs.

In psycho-educational support groups, all questions relating to "The after-effects of paraplegia" can be asked and discussed in the context of moderated topics. You will also be offered advice regarding work, partnerships and sex.

Exoskeleton: Movement at eye level

In 2013, we were the first hospital in Germany to use an "exoskeleton robot", an external, mobile "skeleton". Today, this is used at Schoen Clinic Bad Aibling Harthausen as "regular" therapy for patients with certain paraplegias. It allows even the most severely paralysed people to move around the room on their own two feet. The effects on the mind, circulation and other bodily functions are being scientifically investigated. The aim is to achieve the best possible rehabilitation for you.
