Areas of Application

 

CUREO® addresses cognitive, sensorimotor and perceptual impairments:

  • Motor deficits of the upper extremities
  • Sensory deficits Proprioception disorders

  • Neglect

  • Apraxias

  • Attention disorders

  • Impaired memory, e.g. visual, auditory and language memory

  • Acute pain

CUREO® is particularly suitable for the improvement and aftercare of the following conditions:

  • Neuro-surgical interventions
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Ortho-surgical interventions such as TEP glenohumeral and art. cubiti, as well as amputations

CUREO® addresses the upper body and its functions:

  • Upper extremities including shoulder girdle, upper arm, forearm and hand

  • Trunk, body straightening and postural control

  • Head movements and gaze control

CUREO® has a positive effect on complications in relation to the indications listed:

  • Post-traumatic conditions
  • Depressions
  • Hospitalism
  • Stress regulation
  • Anxiety, pain and depression

Therapy Goals

High frequency therapy with multimodal feedback has a positive effect on the neural system and helps to rebuild and improve sensory, motor and cognitive abilities such as spatial orientation and body perception. This can also lead to pain reduction. Improved motivation and quickly visible, gradual training successes, as well as active relaxation tools, reinforce the success of the therapy.

Improved cognitive skills

  • Spatial perception e.g. arrangement of objects

  • Perception of shape and colour

  • Attention and perception

  • Memory and learning

  • Planning and executive functions

  • Memory (e.g. working and word-finding memory) and orientation

  • Motivation and concentration

Improved motor function of the upper extremities and trunk

  • Range of motion (RoM), quantity and quality of movement

  • Coordination

  • Proprioception

  • Postural control in sitting and fall-protected standing

  • Reach of the upper extremities

  • Mobilisation of the patient, self-initiated movements and muscle development

  • Hand and finger functions (basic grasping functions and hand opening)

  • Finger movement

  • Fine motor skills of the hand e.g. tweezer grip, power grip

General improvements

  • Body awareness and self-regulation

  • Stress reduction

  • Pain reduction

  • Mood enhancement

  • Anxiety regulation

  • Tone regulation

  • Therapy motivation (compliance and adherence)

  • Reduction of depression

  • Neuroregulation

 

Demographic Data

  • There are no restrictions on gender or age, but the patient must be able to follow simple instructions given by the therapist. Therefore, the system is recommended for patients 12 years and older.

  • The CUREO® therapy itself does not require German or English language skills, but the patient must be able to understand the therapist.
