Here is a "snap shot" of how clinicians might deploy RehaCom.
The rehabilitation of cognitive impairments ideally requires continuous treatment over time. Clients are typically very motivated to train independently at their computer. Training ideally begins in the clinic and can then easily be continued at home under supervision of a therapist. The duration of a therapy session with RehaCom depends on the client’s personal performance. According to German clinical guidelines, clients should train:
- Several times a day for 10 to 15 minutes in the acute phase
- In the following 6 to 8 weeks, training sessions of 45 to 60 minutes should take place at least 3 times per week
- In the late phase of rehabilitation, and in the subsequent home training, clients should train 2 to 3 times a week for about 3 to 5 month
The software provides several solutions to enable continuous access to RehaCom training in clinics and at home utilising the principles of telemedicine.
Designed as a "bundle" of 45 hours of RehaCom suitable for an individual to work with for 5 months. This is the optimal package for an individual working at home with the software. An internet connection is required. If this is not available then a RehaCom Dongle will also be required.
RehaCom "INDIVIDUAL" training permits supervised home training
For daily training at home, the therapist can create a therapy plan that is individually adjusted to the clients’ needs.
The client-specific treatment plan is stored on an internet platform.
As soon as the client wants to train, the RehaCom system downloads the training plan, the client performs the training and afterwards, the system saves training results automatically.
Note - The Software price here does not include supervision by a therapist. We recommend this for best results. Using RehaCom will not be hazardous but we suggest that the guidance of a therapist is best.
Thus, the therapist can evaluate the results promptly and has the possibility to supervise and control the performance as well as the results of the home training. It is possible to adapt the training plan optimally to the individual's needs and the actual performance of the person concerned. Based on the training results, the therapist has the possibility to control the course of therapy and to respond to changing performance in a direct way even when the client remains in the community.
The integration of caregivers is possible and can be very motivating for clients, particularly with severe cognitive disorders. Family support is essential for promoting long term active participation in daily life.
