In the specialty area of rehabilitation, we work primarily with Rehab Station Stockholm to offer medical rehabilitation for patients with neurological and orthopedic diagnoses such as spinal cord injuries, orthopedic injuries, neurological injuries and multiple sclerosis.
Rehab Station Stockholm hosts the Spinalis Clinic for the Karolinska University Hospital and rehabilitators are affiliated with Karolinska Institute, one of the leading SCI research centers in the world.
Patients receive a customized treatment program based on predefined goals in order to regain or maintain an active role in society, with a high degree of autonomy and good quality of life. Besides more conventional rehabilitation the training facility offers sports activities including wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, archery and sailing.
