New tools to help post-stroke life

Local News University

The Department of Neurology in MHSC has existed for 90 years. New tools were introduced on the occasion of this anniversary.

Stroke is one of the leading causes of death in Hungary. After a stroke, 30-40% of the patients become mobility impaired and reliant on others. For this reason the neurology department has developed an ankle mobilizing and stimulating device with which it’s easy to move the paralyzed limb and to prevent complications. The device has been made by Andráss Kiss, engineer at National Instruments Ltd. and the company offered it to the clinic free of charge. Another tool that assists rehabilitation is a watch-like device that shows recovery efficiency or indicates the beginning of epileptic attacks.
