Telehealth Cognitive Rehabilitation - Staying connected through RehaCom home training via internet
I work in a post-acute inpatient neuro transitional program where nearly all of our patients have an acquired brain injury. We have patients at all levels of recovery and we have found that RehaCom is useful for nearly everyone as it can meet the patient at their current level and progress them appropriately. We use the RehaCom to address the foundations of cognitive recovery for some and target more advanced skills for return to work and driving with others. The objective data the RehaCom provides is a great tool for our clinicians to not just track progress but use as a tool to show our patients their level of performance, especially when many of them have limited insight into their impairments. The RehaCom has been a great addition to our program in many ways. Many of our patients enjoy it so much that they have asked if they can be given RehaCom “homework” for evenings and weekends.
As a clinical psychologist in a busy private practice, I have been using RehaCom for a number of months now with a particular focus on persons diagnosed with Schizophrenia. We have found that RehaCom has provided our clients with a versatile user-friendly cognitive remediation program that creates an individualised tailored experience that targets each client’s specific cognitive deficits. The screening modules are easy to run and the results sections provides both the therapist and client with a number of visual aids to prompt and motivate. As The Shrink Company operates within a multidisciplinary team, RehaCom has acted as a crucial adjunct therapy to our nursing, psychiatry and psychology approaches. Most importantly, RehaCom has facilitated The Shrink Company's objectives in translating therapeutic approaches that optimise the functional outcomes for our clients.
Mr. B, 58, suffered a stroke in March 2009, while working in the office of his sign company. He was rushed to the local hospital, and admitted into the intensive stroke unit. After 4 weeks he began inpatient treatment at a neurarehab centre. Initial screening indicated deficits in Attention/Concentration and Visual Field. A therapy plan was developed, including training with specific RehaCom therapy modules, thirty minutes per day, four times a week. Mr. B commented ,"I feel like cells in the affected area of my brain are starting to reconnect". After 5 months, Mr. Mr. B now trains daily at home with RehaCom. His therapist reviews his progress remotely, and updates his therapy regimen every 2 weeks. His concentration and attention have improved dramatically, and he can now watch TV and even read books. When asked if he would recommend RehaCom to others, he smiles: "Absolutely! Without question. I have tried several brain-training products , but none with this advanced capability, and matched to my particular weaknesses". Reflecting back, Mr. B says, "At first I was depressed when I started working with RehaCom - I couldn't complete even the lowest level exercises. But then I started flying through the difficulty levels, and I became more and more enthusiastic. I think the depression at first was just a natural consequence of RehaCom forcing me to recognize my limits.".
Our center offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient therapies for neurological rehabilitation. Upon intake, cognitive deficits are assessed and a cognitive rehab therapy plan is developed. Most of the patients show deficits in attention, concentration, memory, visual neglect, executive functions, spatial and visual perception, and other visual field deficits. All of these can be trained using the RehaCom software. The clinic has 7 therapy computers, plus a projector for visual field training. After an introduction, patients work independently with RehaCom. Training can be customized to the specific deficits and abilities of any patient, and the software tracks performance for each task, adjusting the level of difficulty accordingly. The therapist monitors the training, and can work with multiple patients at once, concentrating on those who need the most support. Training results are saved automatically and reviewed afterwards. For patients with more severe impairments, we provide individual training. With an experienced therapist, the RehaCom software can be used to train numeraus, very basic cognitive functions. Our RehaCom database is stored on a network server, so patients can work at any therapy station in the clinic. Patient data and training results are instantly available, and each training session begins where the last one left off. The new training results are then stored in the centralized database. I have worked with RehaCom now for 12 years. and during that time I have watched the system develop. The company has always been open to suggestions, and looking for ways to improve the software. Patients with cognitive disorders are a difficult clientele, but of all systems I know, RehaCom is the most customizable to our patients needs.
Working at a modern day neurology office is extremely difficult, because the level of severity and needs differ with every single patient. RehaCom has squeezed its way into a majority of our treatment plans and has made it easy to allow my patients to work on improving their deficits at their own pace, yet a pace that still challenges them. RehaCom challenges my patients on a daily basis either here in the office or from the comfort of their home which allows patients to recover cognitive abilities, and self-confidence lost in their trauma.
