The physiotherapists of the Neurology and Rehabilitation Department of the Tallinn Children’s Hospital are currently having their first introduction to brand new robotic devices, so that patients in need of therapy could start using them very soon. The training is conducted by Fysioline Oy’s trainer Marjo Jannes-Malm.
The devices are intended for use by children who are paralysed on one side of the body or who are unable to have the normal use of their hands due to neurological disorders. Therapy activities with the hand robot involve a game that motivates the child to actively participate in rehabilitation. The devices come in two sizes and are suitable for patients from the age of five to adulthood.
The Tallinn Children’s Hospital Foundation started collecting donations for the purchase of a hand robot at the end of 2018. Hand robots cost 120,000 euros. Several companies and their kind and generous customers have supported the purchase of the devices:
Olerex, McDonald’s, Selver with its partners – Kalev, Tartu Mill, Haage Water and Mayeri Estonia
We are very happy and grateful for their generosity!
Thank you for the pleasant cooperation, FAF Estonia Trainings!
