cereneo Schweiz AG - Overview
cereneo is a Swiss research facility
and clinic specialized in neurorehabilitation.
As one of the world's leading rehabilitation clinics and research
facilities, we make modern state-of-the-art treatment in rehabilitation
accessible. Combining all different aspects of the therapy from movement to cognition
and by tailoring it to the needs of every single patient, our mission is to
cure disability or at least to enable a high degree of independence and quality
Indications for rehabilitation at cereneo following the acute treatments
are stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and
movement disorders, brain tumor and spinal and peripheral nerve injury.
cereneo` s specialised team, consisting of doctors, speech therapists,
movement therapists (OT/PT), neuropsychologists, rehabilitation nurses,
nutritionists and researchers, offers highly personalised and intensive
therapies, in combination with state-of-the-art equipment such as robotic
assistive devices, e.g. ZeroG setup, ArmeoPower and Virtual Reality training.
Furthermore, motivation plays an important role at cereneo. We are sure
that motivation is the motor of progress. cereneo consistently involves the
patient and his or her social environment to implement therapeutic measures in
an individualized and flexible manner. Therapists and doctors provide
information about improvements and next steps to actively engage, and better
motivate, the patient in his or her own recovery. Standardized assessments are
done weekly to show improvement and define further rehabilitation goals.
Scientific evidence forms the basis of personalised treatment at the
highest level and at cereneo science and therapy go hand in hand. Thanks to the
close connection between cereneo and leading universities in Europe and the
USA, we are always at the forefront of cutting edge knowledge with regards to therapeutic possibilities as well as the
development and implementation of novel technology. The use of state-of-the-art
imaging techniques and a modern laboratory enables us to precisely record a
patient’s condition and progress.
As part of the cereneo therapy concept a patient-specific and hence very
flexible therapy programme is developed at the start of each rehabilitation
phase. Therefore, neurologists and specialists from other medical disciplines such
as movement therapists, speech and language experts, dysphagia and swallowing therapists and nutrition specialists
work hand in hand. The therapy combines various training methods, which all
attempt a maximum of therapy intensity. This is only limited by the capacity and
the motivation of the patient.
STAY AND CULTURAL SERVICES
cereneo is located in Vitznau and connected to the Park Hotel Vitznau,
an exceptionally elegant hotel on the banks of Lake Lucerne surrounded by the
breath-taking scenery of central Switzerland. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology,
we meet all comfort and relaxation needs as well as the dietary needs of our
patients and their families whilst respecting various cultural backgrounds.
Patients from all over the world come to cereneo for rehabilitation. All aspects of an international patient’s
stay, starting from the first contact up to finishing the rehabilitation
treatment are accompanied by a multilingual team. Our team takes care of all administrative and
organisational issues before, during and after a patient’s stay, paying special
attention to his or her personal, cultural and travel-related needs. Each
patient has a person of contact who will accompany the patient during the whole
stay. The person of contact supports the patient with his or her wishes, goals
and personal requirements.
