Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Signs and symptoms often include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles and tremors. There may be problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing and speaking.
TRAINM’s goal for CP management is to maximise the person’s independence and community engagement through a multidisciplinary and individualised approach.
A stroke is a condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding.
TRAINM’s goal for stroke rehabilitation is to return patients to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease in which the myelin in the brain and spinal cord is damaged. MS takes several forms, with new symptoms either occurring in isolated attacks (relapsing forms) or building up over time (progressive forms).
TRAINM’s goal for the rehabilitation therapies of MS patients is to return function after an attack and prevent disability. It also aims to prevent secondary complications. The treatments are intense, effective and have no adverse side-effects.

The difference with the other treatments is that it worked stabilizing and with the Lokomat I am getting better which you didn’t expected with MS. What for me is like comfort is that I can again turn around in bed.
When I came here for my first time I couldn’t do much with my hand and now I can till a stick.
It is a very social environment and not a hospital kind of environment. Which for the children specifically is very useful they can watch youtube, play games, …
After 3 years of being unable to walk it feels wonderful when you suddenly can even if it is with the assistance of a robot it means a lot when you can walk for 30 minutes. It especially gives your mental state a positive boost it says, “ok let’s keep going because it’s obviously working.”
