Questions related to Cognitive Rehabilitation
I'm looking for cognitive rehabilitation programs for free or pdf schedules. There is someone who could help me?
I am using COGNIPLUS program as a rehabilitation computerized tool but not sure how many session will be enough to expect cognitive enhancement. I set 24 1.5 h. sessions , twice a week. And I am not quite sure if I am going the right direction. Is anybody familiar with COGNIPLUS (SCHUHFRIED Co.)?
I try to find some simple method to measure body-posture. We know a lot of them, but they are either low objective (aspect-based methods) or very difficult and expensive (Formetric 4D). Some advice...?
I know about nice resarch from Australia (https://bmcmusculoskeletdisord.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-2474-9-113), but I miss some more informations and all my attempts to contact authors ended up failing.
Thanks in advance, Lenka
Microperimetry is an important diagnostic tool in patients with macular diseases and plays a role also in rehabilitation in relation to the PRL.
I am a psychomotor therapist and I am implementing cognitive remediation approaches in child psychiatry. I would like exchange with researchers and therapists about clinical practice and deep clinical know how in this area...
Is there someone interested in ?
Exoskeletons assist physical tasks by applying significant forces that actuate human joints. Users feel these forces as more or less comfortable depending on the design of the physical interfaces, e.g. wide contact surfaces and soft materials.
I would be happy to hear your experience on what factors affect user comfort the most, when going for larger and larger assistive forces.
My feeling is that at some point the discomfort caused by large forces overcomes the benefits of being physically assisted, resulting at best in users preferring not to wear the exoskeleton in the first place.
Maybe a comprehensive neuropsychological test battery like the NAB (Petermann, Jäncke & Waldmann, 2016) would be helpful in providing a broad cognitive profile!
Is there a validated german translation of the "vestibular disorder activities of daily living scale" (VADL)? Thank you
There is a social innovation model in India in the rehabilitation of the mentally ill through individual initiatives and community support. It is innovative due to the new relationship the community people involved in and the new ideas generated out of it. The researcher used grounded theory as methodology and if any international journals are interested in the original work please let me know.
I'm looking at putting together some training on this and am reviewing the literature before developing the content. I'm interested in how professionals approach boundaries between professional/personal, especially with consideration to individuals with cognitive impairments who may struggle to retain information about boundaries, and also when therapists take a role in social rehabilitation.
AAT interventions are often used in mental health practice, yet there is little research on its use in improving social skills and memory in persons with ABI. I am looking to use this literature to build a strategy within traditional cognitive rehabilitation that would increase successful and long termpositive outcomes.
I am particularly interested in the standard of care for cognitive rehabilitiation in adults or children who have suffered a stroke.
I have the measure and the user manual but annot find the subscale or the total cut off scores for the measure. Does anyone have them? Or can you point me towards a paper that has published these? This is for research only, not for clinical screening.
I have read little about IADL performance observations in dementia (or other cognitive disorders) due to the limited evidence base, yet was wondering whether there is any more research done that I did not come across yet?
I am trying to understand the concept of FES. Since I'm not an expert in rehab research, is there any good link or maybe good review paper that I can read that clarifies the research direction of this FES? For those who are experts, is there any issue or gap that can be filled if I'm interested in getting involved in this area of research? Thanks.
In neuropsychological & neuro-rehabilitation there are times when we meet clients who profoundly disagree with our analysis (which I accept is only ever a hypothesis). Sometimes the nature of the disagreement might be about expected outcomes. For example "when will my hand start moving again?" might be met with a therapist's view - this is a profound paralysis explained by extent of lesion and it might not voluntarily move again - that contrasts with the patient's view "if I keep seeking opinions, keep striving, someone might be able to help restore the lost function"). There are times when it is very difficult to shift from this narrative that seems to head into persisting disagreement&disappointment, preventing adjustment & acceptance. Playing into this context is a marketplace of people with their latest gadget or therapy approach. IN my view, this can perpetuate distress. I think there are some interesting therapeutic implications but not aware of much literature on this (?). I'd be fascinated to know if this is of interest to others in this forum. What therapeutic strategies would you try?
Technical support of every day clinical practice in neurorehabilitation increases with each day. Rehabilitation robots, virtual environments, telerehabilitation, eye-trackers, brain computer interfaces, neuroprostheses, exoskeletons becomes useful and effective tools for members of multidisciplinary therapeutic teams (especially physiotherapists). Where is the place of engineers within it? Will be there possibility (or even necessity) to incorporate them into therapeutic teams in the future?
I am interested in assessment of social communication of children with autism, but I would like develop alternative assessment methods from questionnaires.
