Looking at Amager Hospitals neuro-rehabilitation environment in Copenhagen one can get a feeling of a sterile and clinical setting. This is an interesting observation as the facility addresses users who need to recreate after a stroke.
The neuro-rehabilitation facility re-learns the user to handle daily tasks and train the body to attain self-reliance. The goal is to get the patient back to whatever level he or she can achieve.

In close collaboration with Doctors and Neuro-rehabilitation specialists – nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists works to perform and organize the right exercise set up, for the patient. Unsuccessful rehabilitation leads to a loss of independence and normality is changed forever.

The rehabilitation functions at an in-bed hospital Unit, and normally takes 3-8 weeks. Training of the patient takes place 3-4 times a week, approximately one hour at a time at the hospitals gym, in occupational therapy rooms or facilitated real life settings, as a kitchen or a bathroom.

The tools shown above frames a need, of a personal approach, to helping aids, to be exercised at the patients room. The facility invites the patient to self-rehabilitate, and the question is now, is there a link between self-rehabilitation and motivating and personal exercise tools?
