Research carried out in ALYN Hospital concerning the connection between rehabilitation intervention and the ability to improve mobility was presented by Tal Cohen, Assistant Director of ALYN's Pediatric Respiratory Rehabilitation Department at the 6th East European and Mediterranean Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine Conference which recently took place in St. Petersburg.
Both within Israel and abroad the ALYN Hospital staff are constantly widening the scope of their professional knowledge in the field of pediatric rehabilitation and one of their goals is to share ALYN's vast experience in this field with local and foreign professionals who are working with children who require rehabilitation.
The research paper presented at this EEMCPDM Conference focused on a group of children from Siberia, all suffering from cerebral palsy, who received intensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation treatments in ALYN for a period of between one and three months.
Tal Cohen shared with the conference participants details of ALYN's rehabilitation programs which expose the children to both independent and social activities. The focus of each child's rehabilitation program was to increase their participation in age-appropriate social activities.
The rehabilitation program included instruction to the parents on how to encourage their child to be independent. Results showed that even a brief period of rehabilitation can result in an improvement of a child's mobility.
Dr. Maurit Beeri, Director General of ALYN, who also participated in the Conference, said that ALYN's rehabilitation programs and various projects have raised much interest and ALYN's participation in this Conference signified the creation of new and promising relationships with a number of rehabilitation facilities around the world.
