UNTANGLING THE MYSTERY OF HOW TO MEASURE NEUROBEHAVIOURAL DISABILITY: SASNOS WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 2 | 13.15

Neurobehavioural disability (NBD) resulting from acquired brain injury has significant consequences, underpinning challenging behaviour, which is known to be the greatest impediment to community integration. Assessment of NBD has proved problematic, because symptoms constitute a diverse, complex, subtle, and pervasive constellation of cognitivebehavioural changes. To provide a ‘fit-forpurpose’ assessment tool, the ‘St Andrew’s - Swansea Neurobehavioural Assessment Scale’ (SASNOS) was developed and is available free of charge. In this seminar, attendees will become aware of why and how SASNOS was developed, learn how it is completed, and become familiar with its numerous applications.

DR NEIL BINDEMANN

LIVING WITH A BRAIN TUMOUR – BUILDING MENTAL FITNESS WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 2 | 15.30

For Neil it all started in 2015, when he came out of the MRI scanner and was asked to take a seat as the doctors were looking over his scan and wanted to talk to him. That was it, he quickly became a shivering wreck and needed a sweet cup of tea and blanket. Using his personal experience and a lifelong interest in psychology, his seminar offers some thoughts and tips on managing mental health via the developing concept of mental fitness - as a practical approach to supporting people when they encounter a traumatic life event.

STUART DUNNE

DINING WITH DIGNITY – THE PSYCHOLOGICAL AND FINANCIAL IMPACT WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 2 | 14.00

NECHAMA KARMAN, PT MS PCS

WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 2 | 11.45

BRAKING BAD: DEVELOPING ECCENTRIC CONTROL IN CLIENTS WITH CNS DYSFUNCTION Eccentric muscle contractions are the brakes of the movement system. In individuals with neurological injuries, movement impairments impede the ability to generate eccentric contractions or to time muscle contractions correctly, yielding co-contraction and inefficiency. Nechama will identify how these impairments impede postural control and gait ability, and how to specifically address them using voicing as a mechanism to promote eccentric muscle contractions in intervention programmes to minimise negative effects on gait and maximise walking performance.

DR PAUL TAYLOR

WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 3 | 13.15

NEW APPLICATIONS OF FES IN NEUROREHABILITATION Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) has become a standard intervention for the correction of dropped foot for conditions such as MS and stroke. Recent developments have sought to extend the benefits to other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, or further develop techniques by adding additional functionalities such as hip flexion and extension. Additionally, there are new emerging applications controlling visceral functions, improving chronic constipation in MS, SCI and PD and postural hypotension in tetraplegia. This seminar will report the results of recent studies in these areas and give practical guidance on clinical applications.

DR AVA EASTON

THE IMPORTANCE OF NARRATIVE MEDICINE WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 3 | 12.30

Patient narratives can provide important insights. Deep listening and understanding a person’s narrative can really open our eyes to people’s illness experience, including how they make sense of their ill-health, and how they engage with recovery and rehabilitation. This seminar will explore how narratives contribute to how both patients and physicians make sense of health and illness,

DR CARLEEN SCOTT

QUALITY OF LIFE AND SUBARACHNOID HAEMORRHAGE Subarachnoid haemorrhage is an acquired brain injury which impacts particularly on clients of working age, which can often have a profound impact on many aspects of an individual’s quality of life for many years after the event. This seminar aims to explore the longitudinal and current research regarding QoL post-SAH. By further exploring this, it could help with further understanding the long term rehabilitation and recovery needs for this specific group of individuals across NHS, social care and the voluntary sector.

SAFE BEDS FOR BRAIN INJURY, COMPLEX NEEDS AND CHALLENGING BEHAVIOURS

USING TECHNOLOGY AND DATA TO IMPROVE RECOGNITION OF STROKE

WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 2 | 14.45

WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 5 | 12.30

Reducing risk by providing a safe and appropriate environment to allow access to treatment for those with brain injury, complex needs, movement disorders, challenging behaviours or lack of awareness, can be difficult. CIPOLD (2013) advocated “reasonable adjustments” so people with complex needs can “effectively access delivery of care”. Amanda will explain how specialist safe beds can provide access to care environments for treatment, rehabilitation or therapeutic work and reduce health inequalities.

In Greater Manchester, anything up to 50% of patients taken to a hyper-acute stroke ward are not actually having a stroke, they are having a stroke mimic. Salford Royal are using data to improve the recognition of stroke by paramedics so to minimise the number of non-stroke patients entering the stroke pathway. This seminar will discuss how Greater Manchester Connected Health Cities are linking historical ambulance data with data from Salford Royal Foundation Trust to identify false positive cases (stroke mimics) and explore how such situations may arise.

TODAY’S RESEARCH DEVICE IS TOMORROW’S THERAPY DEVICE The world of non-invasive brain stimulation is experiencing a massive acceleration. Ehab will be looking at the numerous fields that are attempting to combine NIBS for treating ailments ranging from clinical depression to chronic pain and even ADHD. The number of transcranial current stimulation devices entering the market lately, shows a lot innovation in the field, as well as the potentially ground-breaking integrations with technologies such as EEG, and TMS. New technology enables cutting-edge research and new discoveries are driving the need for better technologies, in time this leads to therapeutic devices available for the medical community and the public.

ANNA WEHLING

RFMS IN NEUROREHABILITATION The presentation aims at showing the use of rFMS (repetitive functional magnetic stimulation) in motor disturbance images which are related to an increase in tone and paresis. In the context of sensorymotor neurorehabilitation, rFMS opens interesting new fields of use in findings as well as for therapy. Video examples will be shown to demonstrate how different stimulation modules can decrease hypertonic muscles and activate paretic muscles or muscle chains. Experience shows that rFMS can be a sensible addition in neurorehabilitation.

CAN TRANSCRANIAL ELECTRIC STIMULATION BE USED TO AID COGNITION? WEDNESDAY | THEATRE 10 | 14.00

In this tour of the field get answers to the difficult questions. What is it? What can we learn from the EEG? How can feedback change the brain? How does it work? What’s the evidence? Why haven’t I heard of it? How do you know it’s not a placebo? Learn about the potential of the technology, together with the limitations of current approaches. Hear a compelling vision of the future, transforming billions of lives and shifting human consciousness to new levels.

Recently, transcranial electric stimulation (tES) has been suggested to aid human performance across several domains. Despite this, our understanding of how tES influences the brain, and individual differences in performance change following tES remain limited. Professor Michael Banissy will discuss how these gaps lead to several challenges of using tES as a tool to aid cognition.

DOCTOR JOSE PALOMAR LEVER

THURSDAY | THEATRE 2 | 14.45

P-DTR - NEW NEUROLOGICAL REFLEXOGENIC TREATMENT This seminar will explain why aberrant afferent information is the cause of most neurological problems. With specific challenges to the mechano, chemo and nociceptors and the discovered predictable “rules”, it is possible to obtain a precise diagnosis of the functional problem. The difference in the CNS response under normal conditions (no dysfunction) and during the stimulation of a dysfunctional afferent input has been demonstrated extensively. P-DTR works with most of the exteroceptors, interoceptors, and proprioceptors that form the afferent input to the CNS for diagnoses and treatments.

THURSDAY | THEATRE 3 | 11.00

This seminar will demonstrate how functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems are capable of producing measurable mobility improvements for patients with foot drop and/or knee control issues caused by an upper motor neuron disease or injury such as: stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, incomplete spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury.

Recent advancements in noninvasive bioelectric sensing allow the use of novel materials and technologies to interface with the nervous system. Key to this are printable electrodes that are disposed on ultra-thin tattoo-like substrates for the sensing of EEG, EMG and bioimpedance signals. Electronics interfacing to it should be lightweight and easily connect to electrodes, acquiring and processing signals, then streaming data to patient’s tablet or smart phone and then to the cloud. Long term monitoring is also desirable, allowing the monitoring of patients at home. Bluetooth low energy latest changes, (BLE 5.0) in addition to being very efficient in power, brings a higher transmission bandwidth, enabling the transmission of digitised bioelectric signals.

THE P-DTR CONCEPT MASTERCLASS The method of ProprioceptiveDeep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR) was founded and developed by Dr. Jose Palomar and has been successfully used in clinical practice for several years. P-DTR is the first neurological manual therapeutic method based on neurology, biomechanics, neurophysiology, anatomy and the basics of Applied Kinesiology.

Put simply, P-DTR is the practical application of theoretical neurology and it deals with a large scope of functional musculoskeletal, vegetative, endocrine, visceral and emotional dysfunctions.

P-DTR effectively treats neuromuscular dysfunctions, restores the nervous system and its efferent motor response, resets reflex activity and muscle activation sequences, restores range of motion, and as a secondary result – but essential for patients – eliminates pain and discomfort.

The inspiration and source material for this technique is drawn primarily from a profound understanding of neuroanatomy, physiology and orthopaedics. All of the information that you will be taught during your P-DTR educational journey can be found in any neurology, physiology or orthopaedic textbook anywhere in the world. The difference is that P-DTR training will show you exactly how to interact with all of the neurological theory in each and every person that you treat.

The main objective of the method is the removal of an aberrant afferent signal from receptors and the restoration of an adequate efferent response to the nervous system stimuli.

The textbooks will suddenly spring to life in front of you as your understanding deepens and you become able to see neurology acting and adapting in real time.

AT A GLANCE: • Discover how to interact with neurological theory • Further your understanding of many neurological theories • Improve your awareness of neurology acting and adapting in real time

INNOVATIVE ROBOTICTHERAPY FROM AUSTRIA Intelligent Motion GmbH is a leading company in the field of automated therapy for the highend sector of rehabilitation and of highly advanced training-systems for high-performance-sports.

Results of the study: The study consisted of three phases, each of which was conducted over a three-week-period. In the first phase patients have been treated conventionally for three weeks in the rehabilitation clinic. During phase two the Hirob-therapy has been implemented with five 20-minute-long-units a week. In the final phase patients were treated conventionally again for three weeks

Hirob is a robotic-concept developed to help patients with physical impairments (mostly with strokes, diverse neurological problems, traumatic brain injuries,..). This kind of therapy induces a higher activity of torso and back muscles and improvement of : • • • • •

selective pelvic movement straightening of the pelvis straightening of the torso stabilisation of the torso static and dynamic balance

Implementation of Hirob during the therapy is possible over nearly the entire rehabilitation process and can be started already at the end of intensive-care treatments (no artificial respiration necessary). Improvements on patients during ambulatory treatments are also possible with a regular session with Hirob.

“What amazed me most is the short transfer and setup time of the Hirob. The therapy system can already be implemented in the early phase of the therapy since the speed and range of movement of the Hirob can be adjusted according to the requirements of the patient.” Dr. Andreas Mayr, Therapy Director, Neurology.

or, if the patient had already left the clinic, the therapy was deemed completed. At the beginning and the end of every phase the patients were observed and graded in order to record the effect of each individual phase of therapy. Many patients were able to show a significant improvement of stabilisation of the torso, a higher activity of the back muscles, a straightening of the pelvis and the torso and an improvement of the selective pelvic movement. The study was conducted under the direction of Univ. Prof. Dr. Leopold Saltuari Therapy: The Hirob-therapy is basically conform to all those pathologies that cause an instable posture. The implementation of this therapy has showed very positive results on patients with multiple sclerosis as well as on children with cerebral palsy. Other possible applications of Hirob can be for patients with Parkinson´s, paraplegia or diverse orthopaedic illnesses.

“I have been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre´ syndrome. This is why up until recent I could not walk at all. Since I´ve started the therapy with Hirob it´s been tough and I can walk a couple of steps. Because of the daily therapy with Hirob I´ve noticed a vast improvement especially on the belly and back muscles. I would absolutely recommend the therapy, it has really helped.” Josefine Runegger Patient. intelligent motion gmbh Hauptstraße 13 4552 Wartberg/ Krems Austria T: +43 699 173 23 402 info@intelligentmotion.at www.intelligentmotion.at www.hirob.at
