The patient was treated in this clinic

Hello, friends! I want to tell you about the rehabilitation center "Zentrum der Rehabilitation" in the city of Pforzheim, to which I dreamed to get already for a year and now my dream came true, I'm here. My diagnosis: complete sensory-motor paraplegia from vertebra TH3. As a result of the removal of the structure from the spine in Kiev, which I repeatedly broke down, I stopped walking. I have been in a wheelchair for 4 years already. Immediately, as we drove into the center (I arrived with my mother) was struck by the cleanliness, silence, comfort. We immediately met the administrator of the center, showed us our number and told me what is waiting for me in the next 3 months. Since we arrived on Sunday, the administrator came especially for us, to show us everything and to settle us. It was really nice, because the excitement was present. From the very beginning, when we wanted to turn to the center for help, we understood that we should communicate there in German, but everything turned out to be much simpler, because in the center you can communicate and solve all the problems in Russian because there is a coordinator in the center Irina , which always helped us. We solved the documents, all issues and problems with it. This at times reduced our difficulties in this initial stage. Still, Irina constantly supports us on the spot, if something needs to be translated, something to help, she will always come to our rescue. If there is such a need, the patients are met and taken to the airport. The room in which we live is equipped with a small kitchen, a stove, where you can cook yourself. At the expense of washing, all the things that you need to wash we give and we are washed. Room cleaning takes place every day, everything is cleaned. The rooms are always clean. With this problem is also not. Around the center and in the very center everything is adapted for wheelchairs and for the month that I am already here I did not need the help of others. I overcome everything myself. Elevators, ramps, congresses, arrivals are everywhere, including in the city of Pforzheim itself. For the weekend, I usually take an electric stroller, which you can take always and at any time in the center and walk around the city. No difficulties arose. There are shops, a pharmacy nearby, all you need is near the center. Anyone who experiences at the expense of hygiene, any help (if one has arrived), then you will always be helped if you need it. All therapists and employees of the center are very friendly and sincere. So, I'll start with how I started therapy and all the procedures. From the very beginning, I received 2 therapists. I was assigned to a wonderful girl named Saskia. She is fluent in English and has not had any problems with her language. I want to say that even if you do not know German or English very well, therapists will always find a way to explain it to you. That's cool. During this time, you can also learn the language, which we do) For such cases, there is an interpreter Irina, who always comes to the rescue and tells you everything. I was very worried about the first day of therapy, but everything was so nice and sincere that I forgot about my excitement. First I was taken to the Locomotive. Since I first tried to walk on such a device, it was exciting. The staff of the center who put me on Lokomat did everything carefully and carefully. So I went for an hour and overcame the first day of 800 meters. Then I went to therapy. We started with the fact that I got up and stood. Then for 3 hours we performed exercises for all muscle groups. For each individual it is selected individually. I was given therapy at the rate of 3 hours for the beginning, but those who are stronger and stay here more time, they last for 6 hours. At the end of therapy, on the very first day I was put on my feet and said: "Go on!". I tried to walk with the roler from the first day. At once I will say that it is very difficult to work. With therapy here strictly, even if you do not want, you will work! In the halls there is such an atmosphere that you want to work, even if it's very difficult. After therapy, I come to the room and sleep 2 hours tk very tired. Just want to say that it's worth it! For 2 weeks of therapy, I felt like I was stronger and I walk with the roler much more confidently and better. In the center there is still such a walker as "Vector". It helps people walk when they can not keep their body completely. On such a simulator you walk an hour a day. During the training I had a problem with the knee. It was swollen and I could not stand on it. Therapists immediately noticed this problem, called the doctor, he looked and said what to do. I was given a special knee, so that while the knee is weak, I could do without fear of my leg. When I started these problems, every employee of the center approached me and asked: "How is the knee? Is it getting better already? ». It was very nice that everyone worried about me

The patient was treated in this clinic

My name is Vsevolod, I'm 21 years old and I came from Kazakhstan. In August 2014, while swimming in the river, I broke the cervical vertebra c6 and received a spinal cord injury. Immediately after the injury, my legs, body muscles and fingers were denied. After 4.5 months, I arrived at the rehabilitation center in Pforzheim for rehabilitation. Unlike many hospitals, rehabilitation here is quite radical. 5 days a week from 8 am to 2 days you perform various physical exercises. Most exercises are performed either sitting or standing, which positively affects your blood circulation. If you can not stand, the therapists hold your legs, so that they too have a load. Also every day Lokomat. All therapists have an individual approach, which creates a kind of constant dialogue between you, your muscles and therapist. After therapy, I feel very tired, so it often happens that I sleep after dinner. After several months of therapy, I noticed a lot of progress in the muscles of the body, I began to change from chair to bed independently, I can sit almost without support, and I myself can perform many more things myself. Very pleased that there is not a hospital environment, but quite ordinary rooms, but adapted for wheelchairs. Recently I have tried hippotherapy (riding a horse). Also there were only positive impressions, besides enormous work of the case, very many good emotions. Of course, there are some domestic difficulties and problems, but in general this rehabilitation center is very like.

In 2011, we arrived in Germany with kyphoscoliosis 4 degrees. The situation in which we found ourselves, was very deplorable. We were told that daughter wiil not walk anymore, she is doomed to live in a wheelchair. In Pforzheim Dr. Ruud, who is the chief doctor of the center, and he did not promise anything and did not say anything that they could do. He simply said, "She will walk." Svetlana gave up drugs during the first month, in six months - from the catheter, the first week she began to drive up the stairs, through 2 years - we put aside the wheelchair at all. Now my daughter is already walking with a cane. I am very grateful to those people who have taught my daughter to go and laugh. Low maternal bow.

The patient was treated of atopic dermatitis

I took advantage of Bookimed services in April 2018. They picked up a clinic for the diagnosis of a child very quickly. Manager Svetlana contacted me a few hours after completing the application and was with me online for the next 3 weeks literally constantly. Including in the evening. For which I am very grateful to her! I felt indifferent to my child. The clinic of San Juan de Deux in Barcelona is very well equipped and looks like a Hollywood movie. For a relatively small amount of money, we made a complete check-up including extensive blood tests. However, since we did not have a diagnosis, we had to literally ask for medical advice. Therefore, if there is no specific diagnosis, there may be questions in its formulation. You need to understand exactly what kind of doctors you want to go through. All the specialists are very good, adequate and get on well with the children. The service of foreign clients is well organized, everything is convenient and no difficulties have arisen.
