ACHIEVEMENTS of the patient ARSEN IVANOV





Arsen Ivanov, born in 2002, received a severe cranio-cerebral (TBI) trauma, as a result of a sports trauma in 2012.

The boy underwent two surgeries.

The patient was admitted to NODUS, as his somatic and neurological status had stabilized, in November 2012.

A program of Individual rehabilitation of the 3 inpatient specialized courses was created.

The 1st rehabilitation course was focused on the adaptation of the patient to vertical loads and training of big joints in System 4 pro (Biodex), Kinetek .

After reaching a significant clinical effect, a cranioplastic surgery was conducted.

The kinetic activity gradually increased, verticalization, electrostimulation sessiona were regularly performed. Regular examinations with the use of computer electroencephalography, computer electromyography, MRscan of the brain, transcranial ultrasonography and dopplerography, testing in System 4 pro (Biodex) were made. Neurophysiological indicators showed improvement in the patient’s condition.

The 2nd course of rehabilitation was provided from August 26, 2013 to September 26, 2013. This course was based on S-E-T (therapy for training of deep body muscles) and vertical training sessions at Balance Trainer (coordinating vertical loads) .

The 3rd rehabilitation course included psychological classes, for restoring behavioral pattern.




At hospitalization to NODUS the patient was in contact. Arsen could do simple commands, but got tired quickly. His speech was monotonous, unemotionalr. The patient could neither walk, nor sit. There were spontaneous movements, but his muscular strength was insufficient for holding the body in a vertical posture, the stereotype of movements was partially lost.

The rehabilitation treatment according to the individual rehabilitation program (IRP) began on November 20, 2012.

IRP included: polymodal neurofunctional stimulation of the central and peripheral nervous system, kinesiotherapy, mechanotherapy, hardware verticalization: System 4 pro (Biodex) + Balanse Trainer + Kinetek + SET + massage + exercise therapy (stadium, gym).

Exercise therapy at the stadium (from walking to running, gradual increase in distance and time of classes)


The patient successfully completed the individual 6-month inpatient rehabilitation with the following positive results:

  • normalized functioning of intestine and urinary systems

  • reduction of neurological deficit (decrease in hemypareshis to minimum);

  • restored semantic emotional speech, self-criticism, discretion

  • developed the correct pattern of basic movements

  • the patient can walk and run.

The patient is discharged from NODUS and remain under monitoring, for neurophysiological examinations.
