Medical indications

Within the field of neurology, patients between phases B and D (in accordance with the recommendations of the German Federal Association for Rehabilitation) are cared for following strokes, inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases, tumours or damage caused as a result of injury. The patients exhibit severe to very severe damage to their central and peripheral nervous systems, that in some cases requires constant monitoring.

The treatment of neurological patients in phase B (early stage rehabilitation) and C entails:

  • In phase B: due to minimal levels or a complete lack of ability for self-sufficiency, (scoring low on the Barthel scale) a level of intensive medical supervision and care, corresponding to a status of intensive care, is still required.
  • In phase C: due to a moderate capacity for self-sufficiency (middling scores on the Barthel scale) patients will at this point already take an active part in their therapies treatments. They must, however, still be provided with curative medical treatment or a high level of nursing care.

Rehabilitation in Phase D is carried out after the early mobilisation stage has been completed, the patient has achieved the highest possible degree of self-sufficiency and has, insofar as they are sponsored by a state health insurance fund, received a positive prognosis in terms of their professional ability.

Specific care specialisations

Conditions following:

  • strokes (cerebral infarction and cerebral haemorrhage)
  • operations on the extra and intracranial vessels that supply the brain
  • operations on space-occupying processes within the (brain tumours)
  • craniocerebral trauma
  • meningitis
  • encephalitis
  • encephalomyelitis
  • movement disorders
  • polyneuropathies
  • paraplegic disorders
  • speech (speaking and swallowing) disorders

Admittance will be granted to patients in phase B (early stage rehabilitation) and C displaying any of the above indications.

Specialisations within early stage rehabilitation

  • strokes, at over 60% of the principal diagnosis, often associated with cardiovascular diseases
  • craniocerebral trauma
  • inflammatory diseases
  • polyneuropathies with multiple comorbidity
  • weaning artificially ventilated patients off the use of respirators
  • paraplegic syndromes
  • movement disorders
  • diagnostic techniques and therapies: fibre-optic endoscopic swallowing diagnostics, facio-oral tract therapy, EMG-controlled botulinum toxin injections in cases of spasticity

Specialisations within Phase C

  • post-stroke treatment
  • multiple sclerosis
  • treatment following craniocerebral trauma
  • inflammatory diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system such as Guillian-Barré syndrome, polyneuropathies, and conditions following encephalitis/meningitis
