Project Covid Rehab winner of the SNN subsidy

On April 10, 2020, the three northern provinces and the Partnership North Netherlands (SNN) one million euros available for innovative corona solutions. In total, 22 proposals were submitted by northern entrepreneurs, researchers and healthcare institutions. After evaluation, five innovative projects ultimately received subsidies. One of the projects that has received a grant is the result of a unique collaboration between AMC, Lode and ProCare . Three parties that have started working together under the name Total Rehab to optimize Covid rehabilitation.

The cooperation - Total Rehab

At Total Rehab, the patient starts rehabilitation in the ICU in bed. Thanks to the combination of a bedside ergometer and specially developed software on a tablet or PC, the progress of a patient can be tested more often and results are immediately visible. As a result, the rehabilitation process is better monitored and more active efforts are made to optimize recovery. Rehabilitation as early as possible ensures a better and faster recovery and can prevent complications. Ultimately, this results in a higher quality of life.

Total Rehab was first installed and tested at the AMC this week.
