Target users


Happy Rehab target usersChildren and youth with neurological disabilities

HAPPY REHAB is primarily targeted users with cerebral palsy with mild to moderate gross motor functional limitations (GMFCS - E&R I-III (IV)). HAPPY REHAB can be used as a treatment method for users suffering from “toe-walking”, increased knee flexion or balance problems, for example. HAPPY REHAB may also be used in rehabilitative training following Botulinium toxin (BTX) injections in the lower extremities, in order to achieve specific repeated movements.

 

Neurorehabilitation

Children, youth and adults who need confidence and standing support for active movements in the standing position, or for balance training in rehabilitation after apoplexy, accidents or other complications can benefit from using HAPPY REHAB.

 

Rehabilitation after surgery

HAPPY REHAB can also be used to regain mobility of the ankle and knee joints after surgery, as well as activating muscles after plaster casting and immobilisation. HAPPY REHAB can be adjusted according to the specific user’s joint mobility and muscle strength, to create an individual training programme.

Many children lose motivation to train, if the training is routine and boring. Happy Rehab has been shown in many cases to be a good solution, because the children can train at home while it doesn’t feel like training
