Get back into balance


Dear Sir or Madam,

One little moment can change everything. If the body retains a permanent disability as a result of an accident or gets out of balance as a result of a stroke, the path back to a balanced life begins in rehabilitation. How robotic assistance systems help people today getting back on their way and why the use of technology does not replace the experience of the therapist, you will find out in our Topic of the Month May: Modern rehabilitation.

Have a nice week,
