The increase in the number of strokes in France has made the rehabilitation of hemiplegic patients a real public health issue. The same is true for cerebellar ataxia. Moreover, progress in medical imaging has enabled neurological research to progress considerably. The rehabilitation of these patients has therefore evolved and has been enriched by new techniques and recommendations validated by the HAS.

This training aims to improve the physiotherapy management of hemiplegic and ataxic patients based on the latest studies published in the literature.

Based on the latest advances in neuroplasticity, it develops new functional approaches that physiotherapists can propose to their patients. This training is above all practical and proposes rehabilitation workshops that can be personalised for each patient and carried out in any practice or at home.

  • To know and use the new methods of functional rehabilitation for hemiplegic and ataxic patients (Gait trainer, muscular reinforcement, aerobic exercises, virtual reality, robotic systems) according to the recommendations of the HAS
  • Know how to perform a specific assessment to determine the patient’s deficits and disabilities
  • Set up an adapted and personalised rehabilitation for each patient with dozens of different exercises.
  • Implement effective prevention of complications specific to hemiplegia (shoulder pain, sedentary lifestyle) and propose new tools for resuming sporting activity.
