Exercises are important for people with cervical dystonia to correct the position of the head, facilitate movement and reduce tension and pain. By seeking out and be assessed of a physiotherapist with knowledge of dystonia, you can receive an individually tailored home exercise program on this platform. Your physiotherapist will give you a personal code, which you enter in the box below, and press the "open exercise program" button. This will open your home exercise program, available on computer, tablet and smartphone. Each exercise consists of descriptive text, 1-2 models and for some of the exercises also an animation. For those who prefer to have the program in paper form, it can also be printed.
The demo consists of a training programme with three more general exercises, and aims to give you as a patient, physiotherapist or for other reasons interested insight into what a training programme in the platform can look like. The exercises in the demo are not suitable for all types of dystonia, and cannot replace an individually tailored training programme, which is created and downloaded through the platform.open demo
This platform is designed to help you as a physiotherapist in your treatment of patients with cervical dystonia. The platform has an external public page available on computer, tablet and smartphone and an internal closed page, addressed to physiotherapists, only available on computer. The latter contains over a hundred different exercises for cervical dystonia with descriptive text, 3D models and for half of the exercises also animations, providing both an exercise bank in your treatment and the possibility to design home training programmes. The platform is easy to use and has handy guiding filtering functions. This way, with basic knowledge of cervical dystonia, you can, after examining the patient, design a suitable personalised home exercise programme, which will be accessible to the patient through a randomised personal code. For those who do not feel comfortable with the digital, a pdf file is available with the possibility to print it on paper. As a physiotherapist, you will need to register to access the exercises, which is done through a form available under the "Register now" heading on the top menu or down here. The registration must then be approved by the manager of the respective country, after which you will receive login details via email.Login or register now!
This platform was developed to give the patient with cervical dystonia better access to clear and personalised home exercise programmes, and to make it easier for the physiotherapist to create and update these programmes when necessary. In addition, there is now a large exercise bank to choose from in the treatment of the individual dystonia patient. The idea was born during the pandemic, with its increased focus on digital solutions.
