During three days, participants had the opportunity to immerse themselves into interesting lectures, seminars, workshops, taste specially selected food, that can influence development of neuroplasticity - Food4Brains, and to participate in building a "bridge" not only between basic science and clinical practice, and in the opposite direction – between patients and research.

These games are designed for patients with movement disorders to improve the stepping movements, balance, reaction speed and cognitive abilities. It is important that every game can be individually adjusted according to the patient's level of motor development.

Note that all the patients who were previously on treatment in the International Clinic of Rehabilitation or “Elita” Rehabilitation center can get free access to the rehabilitation stepping games and use them at home. More on page www.rehagame.com
