On the medical point of view, the activities of the functional re-education and neurological rehabilitation include:

  • External consultations for physical and rehabilitation medicine
  • Functional explorations:

- Electrophysiologic examinations: electromyography (EMG) – about potentials among other things…
- Neurodynamic examinations
- Quantified Movement (and posture) Analysis (QMA) :
Movement disorders are often complex. Incertitudes concerning diagnosis must be cleared to give more accurate therapeutic indications. The QMA allows a simultaneous recording of three-dimensional movement trajectories, involved forces (force platforms) and muscular activities (dynamic multi thread electromyography) leading to a better approach of motor disorders affecting posture, balance, locomotion, spatial exploration and prehension.

  • Consultation of Evaluation and Spasticity Treatment (EST) and Dystonia :

- Motor groups with local anaesthetics and neurolytic agents
(botulinum toxin – phenol – alcohol)
Those care last over weeks, sometimes months, and must be integrated into a concept of continuous care. They require close knit cooperation between upstream hospital and medical structures as well as downstream long-stay institutions, professional environment, home care services and families.

Important and frequent urinary and sexual consequences of neurological pathologies and their repercussions on patients' lives led to the creation of a special unit, the S.E.N.U.F.S.

The objective of this Sexologic Evaluation and Neuro-urologic Follow-up Service is to analyze the neuro-sexual and bladder-sphincter dysfunctions and to offer a therapeutic project taking these elements into account in the treatment of the handicap and mid- long-term follow-up: comparative evaluations – medicinal adjustments – new technical help – education of patients and their relatives.
