To ensure our stroke rehabilitation solution is a good fit for each stroke survivor’s unique conditions, we first measure their level of physical, cognitive, and sensory capabilities. In addition, we perform a non-invasive screening of the client’s brainwave activity while relaxed and during intention to move the stroke-affected hand.
We conduct screening by fitting an EEG cap on stroke survivors, which typically takes 1-2 hours. This data is then used to calibrate our software program for the individual, which allows for personalised training sessions.
Round One of our Neuro-Feedback training is conducted over four weeks. Each week the client will attend up to five sessions consisting of one and a half hours.
Round Two will be completed over another four weeks
During each training session, you will undergo an EMG test and also complete five runs of our EEG training program, taking a total of 1-1.5 hours.
The EMG test is a non-invasive reflex test of the extensor muscles on the forearm, using adhesive electrodes and the RehabSwift robotic hands. This allows our software to track ongoing improvements and adjust the training sessions accordingly.
Meanwhile, EEG training sessions involve non-invasive brain activity monitoring using an EEG cap. By using their thoughts and intention to move, clients can control the movement of the robotic hand enmeshed with their fingers, strengthening the neural pathways for sensory-motor function through completion of the neuro-feedback loop.
After four weeks of training, a second assessment session is conducted to evaluate changes that have occurred throughout the program. This assessment is similar to the initial screening and helps our staff make recommendations for fostering new motor functions and continuing our services in a way that’s best for you.
After adjustments following the second assessment, you will complete the remaining training sessions in another four-week round of intensive training.
At the end of the program, a final assessment is conducted to measure the recovery gains.
Our program is charged per hour with our neuro-feedback training experts.
Each client will complete 39 sessions including three (the initial, midway and a final) assessment sessions and 36 training sessions.
Each session ranging between 1 – 1.5 hours, depending on the client level of disability. Therefore, the total hours for the program can reach up to 60 hours.
Our services may be fully or partially subsidised through NDIS and Aged Care programs.
Our services can be claimed through NDIS for clients who are plan-managed or self-managed. But, Agency-managed clients cannot be reimbursed for our program.
We will supply appropriate reports for fund allocation approval, as well as an NDIS appropriate service agreement for the duration of our program. Our team will liaise with the client’s NDIS support coordinators as required.
For clients assessed and approved within the Aged Care scheme, our services can be redeemed using their fund allocations. We will provide an Aged Care appropriate service agreement for the duration of our services and can liaise with client’s Aged Care support coordinators as required.
Our advanced stroke-rehabilitation clinic is located within the University of Adelaide’s Thinclab Building.
