"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.

Residents of retirement and nursing homes are currently only allowed to receive limited or no visitors at all. This limitation has been shown to reduce the physical activities of residents (Frahsa et al., 2020) and can lead to loneliness and isolation. It is therefore all the more important to reach and motivate the vulnerable people in other ways.
We would like to thank all helpers for their tireless commitment, reliability and willingness to help during the Corona crisis. In these times it is still about protecting oneself and others, taking care of each other, being prudent and there for each other.
