Here at BASIC, we believe that everyone should have access to high-quality rehabilitation services after suffering from a brain and spinal injury. We offer a range of services that are suitable for severe injuries to minor injuries.
Our team embrace partnership work and are happy to share advice and work collaboratively, using our rehabilitation services with other agencies.
Virtual reality rehabilitation enables patients with a disability to practice real-life situations in a safe and controlled environment, leading to improved physical stamina, better cognitive skills, dual tasking and improved confidence.
Power assisted exercise equipment is specifically designed for people with physical disabilities who need to exercise but could not or would not access a conventional gym. BodyBasic comprises of 16 specifically designed assisted exercise machines.
Fatigue is experienced at some point after a period of physical or mental activity and is a signal telling us to take a break. Normally fatigue is time-limited and alleviated by rest, whereas 'pathological' fatigue, such as that experienced following brain injury, may be present most of the time. It may not improve with rest and is likely to significantly impact on people being able to do the activities they want to do.
75p in every pound is spent running vital rehabilitation services.
