Innovation is more than a buzzword for us. Equipped with our own research institute and thanks to strong research collaborations, we do not only implement innovative technologies into our practices as fast as possible, but we also test their efficiency in treatment.
The goal of our research and partnerships is to develop a novel form of neurorehabilitation that is seamlessly integrated into the daily routine of our patients. The goal is that you train yourself by being as active as possible. The necessary corrective feedback, assistance and safety measures are provided by intelligent technology and by the interaction with your therapist.
Patients need to be self-motivated to be active in their daily lives. Our motivational research focuses on innovative therapy approaches to incentivise and foster active training and activity in everyday life.
Taking ownership of their own rehabilitation comes with certain challenges for patients, to do the different tasks correctly without supervision or help. The research efforts at our foundation CEFIR are focused on finding and further developing intelligent technologies in order to avoid mistakes and foster correct execution of the different rehabilitation tasks.
We are continuously taking part in innovative research collaborations and projects working in conjunction with renowned educational bodies around the world and always aiming for the highest quality of neurorehabilitation, based on the latest scientific developments.
Together with ETH Zurich (DHEST, Prof. Gassert , Prof. Riener), cereneo develops sensor technologies to be able to monitor stroke patients during their daily life.
Together with Hocoma, cereneo develops new training devices and robots for arms and legs and tests their use in clinical studies.
Together with Twente University (Biomedical Signals and Systems, Prof. Dr. ir. Peter Veltink), cereneo develops sensor and feedback technology for stroke patients.
Together with Johns Hopkins University, cereneo performs randomised, clinical studies in the area of arm rehabilitation using new robot training approaches.
Together with The LOOP Zurich Medical Research Center, cereneo is conducting a study to significantly improve precision rehabilitation through personalized stimulation loops.
University Hospital Zurich (USZ) and cereneo collaborate on Parkinson's disease recovery
We are proud to announce the collaboration between USZ and cereneo: Together we have developed a treatment approach that allows us to provide high quality care for gold standard Parkinson treatments at USZ and long-term rehabilitation at cereneo, while having access to a global network of leading Parkinson and neurorehabilitation experts. Want to learn what the programme offers to patients with Parkinson’s disease?
The latest technology in stroke recovery
Our neurorehabilitation clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art movement analysis, robotic systems and other innovative devices to complement the hands-on training with the therapist.
This arm exoskeleton helps impaired patients to train their arm movement by assisting with force.
ZeroG® by Aretech
This innovative over-ground gait training tool helps to train mobility and balance. Dynamic partial body weight support (DBWS) reduces the risk of falling whilst offering the patient a real-life experience.
