REINHEIM. Helmut Gruhn was recently at manu medi’s practice in Reinheim to demonstrate therapeutic approaches and hand movements based on the Bobath concept together with part of the team of therapists and two patients. Helmut Gruhn has been a physiotherapist for 50 years and a Bobath instructor for more than 30 years. For his scientific and therapeutic achievements, he received the 2022 motivational award from the German Stroke Foundation. In his Perception House in Hainburg, he developed his “back-to-life concept”, particularly for those affected by a stroke. Gruhn, together with a co-author, published his decades of successful work with stroke patients as well as his therapy methods and positive experiences with the treatment approaches in his book ” Life doesn’t end in one fell swoop.”
Ingeborg Uhl, owner of the physiotherapeutic practice manu medi, is very concerned about the training and further education of therapists. For the intensive seminar in the practice rooms, two patients from manu medi were available to Helmut Gruhn for his hand, posture and movement grips. These were a stroke patient and a patient with multiple sclerosis. Ingeborg Uhl expressly thanked her patients for their active cooperation.
“In the Bobath concept there are no standardized exercises, but everyday therapeutic activities that accompany the patient in their daily routine,” says Ingeborg Uhl and adds: “It is a 24-hour concept that is characterized by a high level of dynamics of scientific and practical knowledge. And that’s exactly what this workshop is about. Bobath therapy is used for people who have had a stroke or brain trauma, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or other neurological and neuromuscular diseases. The focus of the therapeutic process is on one’s own activity and individuality of the individual patient If you want to know more about this, look under manu-medi.de or simply call 06162 50360. red
