Slowly, but surely - with the beginning of December, and the weather getting colder and colder - it can no longer be denied ... in a few days it will be Christmas! And of course, what cannot be missing at this atmospheric time of year? A Christmas tree!
In a virtual setting, ECNR 2021 spans a wide arc under the motto: "Neurorehabilitation – yesterday, today and tomorrow". Topics ranging from the origins of neurorehabilitation to current promising developments to yet unimaginable perspectives in the future will be debated.

Most recently at the 2019 trade fair more than 750 exhibitors from over 40 countries were present. Last year, the trade show was held as a digital exhibition show. The next REHACARE in Düsseldorf is scheduled for 14-17 September 2022.
A MOTOmed offers a multitude of adjustment options to support users during training. Yet in certain situations, this detailed knowledge is not always present. How does it work? How do I use it? Great if you then have helpful tutorials to fall back on.
The MOTOmed layson.la is a versatile medical device that provides patients in intensive care units, critical care and early rehabilitation with passive (motor-driven), assistive (motor-assisted) and active (using the patient's own muscle strength) training of both the legs and the arms and upper body.
The Department of Anesthesia, Resuscitation and Pain Management at the Dr. Negrín University Hospital in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria uses the MOTOmed letto2 for early mobilization of intensive care patients.
"There is no carnival this year, but delicious carnival pastries in a bag".
Carnival is different this year: All parades and cherished carnival traditions have been canceled due to the Corona pandemic. Nevertheless, in order to provide some carnival cheer, the management distributed carnival pastries and an FFP2 mask to all employees on carnival Thursday - at a distance, of course. These baked, wonderfully fragrant and delicious pastries are a tradition and belong to carnival like the costume to the carnival fool.
Robert Alexander Jones Baro, a physical therapist in the intensive care unit of the Autonomous University of Querétaro in Mexico, uses evidence-based MOTOmed Movement Therapy and targeted inspiratory muscle training (IMT) to help critically ill people in intensive care units: "There is no better combination than assisted and controlled aerobic training combined with inspiratory muscle training to achieve successful weaning.“
The MOTOmed muvi is unique in its flexibility as a movement therapy device. Whether pure arm/upper body training, leg training or simultaneous leg and arm training - all forms of movement are possible with the MOTOmed muvi.
As a special feature in the latest version, it is now also possible to play music simultaneously. This can on the one hand increase the motivation during training, and on the other hand improve the quality of the therapy, as has been proven in various studies.
In these so different times, we could unfortunately not experience our annual review and fellowship at the otherwise traditionally held Christmas party. All the more delightful was the action of the management to deliver a Christmas present to all employees on the day when otherwise the Christmas party would have taken place.
As is tradition, St. Nicholas also came to RECK this year. In addition to the delicious, wonderfully fragrant pastry St. Nicholas, the employees were each presented with an airy and light MOTOmed multifunctional cloth and an FFP2 mask.
