- Brain plasticity is the ability of the brain and nervous system to change structurally and
- functionally in response to experience.
- Plasticity occurs on the level of cellular changes and changes involved in cortical remapping.
- The most widely recognized forms of plasticity are learning, memory, and recovery from
- brain damage.
The K-SET Method and Neuroplasticity
The K-SET method is an innovating rehabilitation approach that is based on the science of Brain plasticity. Through the exercise of brain plasticity, in order to achieve the creation of a new neuron synapsis, we must take into an account the following seven parameters:
- Frequent repetition of movement.
- Speed of movement.
- Angle of movement.
- Intensity of movement.
- Weight Bearing (loading) during movement.
- Avoid shock absorption and redundancy.
- Virtual Reality environment during movement (Reduced attention during movement and promote the automaticity )
K-SET Method Indications
- Rehabilitation after stroke.
- Brain injuries.
- Spinal cord injuries.
- Cerebral palsy (children and adults).
- Multiple sclerosis.
- Parkinson disease.
- Neuromuscular disorders.
- Ataxia and discoordinated movements.
- Balance disorders.
- Postoperative rehabilitation.
- Cardiovascular endurance test .
