The activities of the Neuromotor Rehabilitation Unit, accredited with the Regional Health System, are geared toward the functional recovery of patients with neurological and orthopedic disease outcomes. The operational tools of the reeducational pathway are:
- Interprofessional Team work among physiatrist specialists, geriatricians, psychologists, rehabilitation therapists, speech and language therapists, orthopedic technician, occupational therapists, social workers, and nurses;
- The formulation of an individual plan for each patient, drawn up by the rehabilitation team, which, taking into account the patient’s needs, impairments, disabilities and residual abilities, as well as the limitations imposed by environmental situations and available resources, defines what overall final outcomes are desired within defined time frames.
Within the Neuromotor Rehabilitation Operating Unit, there are several work units, which allow for substantial differentiation of functional recovery training through the implementation of a wide range of work programs ranging from isokinetic mode, to more gentle, proprioceptive intentions, also dedicated to patients with neurological diseases.
Neuromotor Rehabilitation – Day Hospital
San Raffaele Montecompatri offers the possibility of Day Hospital admission, with the availability of 9 beds, accompanied by:

In case of need, the facility makes use of medical-specialist consultations.
The rehabilitation program makes use of traditional instruments and methods already widely known to the public, but also of less conventional but particularly effective instruments and methods such as:
- Capacitive-resistive diathermy (TECAR) used in cases of analgesic and anti-inflammatory therapy
- Hyperthermia in the case of analgesic therapy
- Assessment of gait in static and dynamic phases with proprioceptive footplates
- Dynamic phase load control with Stabitron (pressure biofeedback system )
- Biodex for muscle strengthening and muscle tone control
The course of the rehabilitation program evolves in consultation and agreement with the patient and his or her family members, who share the goals.
