Valencia, - Spain
Valencia al Mar Hospital merges tradition and modernity in an emblematic modernist building of historical importance (declared Historical-artistic patrimony) and located in the Maritime District. A particularly notable feature of the Hospital Valencia al Mar is its Brain Damage Department, a benchmark for excellence in Europe. It caters for the need for personalized, complete and multidisciplinary rehabilitation of patients who have suffered craneoencephalic trauma. It also has LOKOMAT, a robot to recuperate patient mobility. There are only three such units in Spain. We have recently opened a Mental Health Unit in this centre for short and medium stay patients and an Ambulatory Surgery Unit or other acquired brain pathologies with the potential for rehabilitation.
NEUROREHABILITATION IN VALENCIA AL MAR HOSPITAL
The Neurorehabilitation Unit began its patient treatment programmes at this hospital in 1998. Located in an emblematic modernist building declared historical and artistic heritage in the maritime district of Valencia, Nisa Valencia al Mar Hospital offers a peaceful and privileged environment for rehabilitation just a few minutes from the beach.
The hospital has a multidisciplinary team of specialized professionals in the field of neurorehabilitation (neurologists, rehabilitation doctors, neural psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, cognitive therapists, social workers, nurses, etc.). This team offers an intensive, specialized, and individualized treatment to meet each patient’s needs. The hospital offers care for adult patients through different forms of treatment: residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and day hospital treatment.
The team uses the latest technologies and boasts several virtual reality applications to help patients to improve their balance, coordination, upper and lower limb movements, and cognitive functions. The centre also recently acquired the Lokomat® Pro V6, a robotic device for gait rehabilitation of adults and children.
