Turkey today is one of the global centers of physiotherapeutic and apparatus rehabilitation. Depending on the type and severity of the disease, Turkish rehabilitation professionals can either completely restore the damaged functions of the body, or significantly improve the well-being and quality of life of the patient.
Robotic rehabilitation is an indisputable advantage of Turkish rehabilitation medicine. In the country, there are a number of clinics, where along with traditional rehabilitation methods – physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, massage, exercise therapy, etc. – robotic systems are used that allow working out the musculoskeletal system even in patients with paralysis or in a coma.
An example of the successful use of robots in medical rehabilitation is LOKOMAT, a robotic system for simulating walking leg movements in patients who have lost the ability to walk due to paralysis, brain or spinal cord injury, orthopedic or neurological diseases. This method allows to "remind" the brain and spinal cord how to take steps. Nerve impulses when walking stimulate the areas of the brain that are responsible for movement and help restore the damaged functions.
Health conditions treated in Turkish rehabilitation centers:
- Injuries of the musculoskeletal system, brain and spinal cord
- Paralysis and paresis of various origins, including cerebral palsy
- Scoliosis and intervertebral hernias
- Conditions after a stroke and acute cardiological diseases
- Multiple sclerosis
- Speech and swallowing disorders in adults and children
