Neuro Matters - Putting the pieces back together
Education & Training
The 5 neurological therapists who comprise the Neuro Matters team have a wide range of expert skills and an active interest in evidence-based practice with half having completed research projects in conjunction with Masters level studies. For instance, Rosaline Van de Weyer (Neuro O.T.), has published research regarding client-initiated goal setting and goal attainment in neurological rehabilitation and Suzanne Pascoe (Paediatric Physio) has investigated the use of TELER outcome measures and the efficacy of different sleep systems with children.

Nina Smithís MSc research project investigated self-practice and the speed of sit to stand at different stages of post-stroke recovery. She has also investigated the use of vibration therapy training for people with M.S. and has worked on rehabilitation research projects funded by the Stroke Association and Action Medical; investigating upper limb recovery post-stroke in response to different doses of therapy and the use of F.E.S. for strengthening.
In addition to our research brainiacs, we are all interested in using novel and varied approaches and technologies, (when itís appropriate and suits the clientís needs) to enhance rehabilitation and functional recovery; Sam Smith (Neuro O.T.) incorporates the use of the Nintendo Wii and smartphone apps into her clinical practice and Lorna Saunders (Paediatric Physio) is skilled in the use of an Anatomical Measuring Instrument to improve body symmetry as part of 24 hour postural management for children. All the Neuro Physios who work for Neuro Matters have been trained in the use of the Bioness wireless F.E.S. devices and Nina Smith gave an evidence-into-practice presentation at Naidex South 2012 about the use of robotics, the Interactive Metronome and computer gaming in brain injury rehabilitation.
