Detailed description

In patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) balance and gait disorders are frequently encountered problems. Imbalance and gait disorders in MS cause falling, increasing dependence in activities of daily living and lead to physical disability Nowadays rapid progress in technology shows itself in the field of rehabilitation and new methods are added to physiotherapy every day. Treatment options in the balance system have a varying degree of difficulty. So the patients can start treatment at the most appropriate level according to their condition and the degree of difficulty can be increased as the patients get better. Since 2006, we have been working with Gazi University Neurology Department and our aim is to provide support and treatment to the MS patients we treat in the use of these technologic devices for free. Our goal is to provide patients with MS who have balance and gait disorders with world-class quality and effective rehabilitation services.
