ALS and MS are chronic neurological disorders that involve progressive or intermittent deterioration of various neurological functions, including motor skills, sensory perception, vision, and cognition.
Our team of dedicated healthcare professionals are committed to improving the quality of life for people living with these neurological conditions using a patient-centred approach.
With BRAINTEASER we stay up to date with the latest research and treatment options to deliver the most effective therapies available while continuing to use a broad range of services to address all aspects of patient care:
- Personalized rehabilitation programs that focus on maximizing mobility, strength and independence to improve their daily activities
- Speech language techniques and exercises to improve communication skills and ensure safe and efficient swallowing
- Psychological and emotional aid throughout the trip. We offer counseling services and support groups to help patients and their loved ones overcome the emotive impact of these conditions and build resilience
- Staying at the forefront of scientific advances, we aim to provide our patients with access to innovative treatments and potential breakthroughs in the field of neurology.
BRAINTEASER uses a mobile app and low-cost sensors to record environmental data such as pollution, temperature and clinical data of different nature such as oximetry and heartbeats, to build mathematical models that will merge those data to better understand the epidemiology of ALS and MS.
Our goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the onset and varying progression of ALS and MS among patients, enabling us to explore novel treatment approaches.
