Switzerland, Vitznau

cereneo was founded in 2012 in the Vitznau municipality on the shore of Lake Lucerne. Alpine nature, thermal waters, and fresh air create a supportive environment for the speedy recovery of patients.

cereneo strong points

  • Individual approach. Every patient has a rehabilitation program developed exclusively for his/her needs.
  • Robotic systems. The clinic applies innovative rehabilitation devices that accelerate the recovery process of the musculoskeletal system.
  • The utmost care. The medical team has numerous staff and accounts 3 times more doctors than patients, so everyone who undergoes rehabilitation gets the highest attention.
  • Inhouse research institute — cefir. Its specialists develop and test new therapeutic methods, the most effective of which are used to treat patients of the center.

Technologies applied at cereneo

cereneo neurorehabilitologists use modern robotic systems that allow to work out limbs. To monitor the dynamics of treatment, doctors use motion sensors that help to fix the patient's condition and balance.

Among them are:

  • The Armeo Power Exoskeleton. It helps to work out arms, improves muscle tone, increases the amplitude of joints movement.
  • The ZeroG System for gait, body movements, and balance coordination. The system supports the patient's body, eliminating the risk of falling.
  • The Parker Indego Exoskeleton. It aims to support patients with brain or spinal cord injuries to learn walking again. The robot puts legs in motion, distributing the load and training the balance.
  • The Erigo simulator. It maintains a vertical position of the body, and the patient adapts to physical activity. Exercises with Erigo prepare the lower limbs for the next step in restoring walking.
  • Lokomat Treadmill Training. This device has different speeds adjustable for legs. A doctor prescribes this therapy to train the patient's brain control walking independently.

Sensor devices and feedback sensors help the doctor to analyze the patient's condition during or after treatment in everyday life.

Stroke treatment

To restore patients after a stroke, clinic doctors use robotic devices in combination with the following types of therapy:

  • non-surgical brain stimulation — a method of restoring muscle strength and speech
  • speech therapy — training of talking and swallowing function
  • neuropsychology — a set of exercises to correct the memory, abstract thinking, attention.

Additionally, a patient is consulted by various specialists who give recommendations for lifestyle correction and develop a maintenance therapy program for home performing.

Services for international patients

  • Coordinators assistance
  • Language assistance if required
  • Facilities for accompanying people to stay in the patient's room or the partner 5-star Park Hotel Vitznau.
