ARNI Method

The Action for Rehabilitation from Neurological Injury (ARNI) is an international charity which provides important support for stroke survivors by offering self-rehabilitating, specific, task orientated functional training and individual coping strategies in order to achieve functional rehabilitation. This special training course, endorsed by the UK Stroke Forum for Education and Training (UK Stroke Network, NECVN & Beds & Herts Heart & Stroke Network), was created for therapists and professional practitioners who developed post-stroke functional rehabilitation and training programs in the field of theoretical and practical know-how and experience.

In England from 2001 the ARNI method is well expected/ and strong evidence based and we are happy to share introduced in Hungary this training from 2017. We prioritize / and pace into each session, customized for the patient/ the 4 elements of ARNI, which are cardiovascular exercise, task-practice, stroke specific strength training and the development of physical coping /or self -management/ strategies.

Stroke Neuro Rehab

Our goal is to reach as many people in Hungary as possible, to raise awareness and to have recognition for this functional, unusual training. We have established a center in Budapest and we are now working to establish similar centers across the country. It is vital to monitor the development of stroke survivors and other patients affected by diseases of the nervous system, and to organize a workshop for their rehabilitation where practical training is also taught professionally.
Once a patient leaves the hospital’s stroke ward, in-hospital rehabilitation comes to an end. We make it possible for patients to receive professional rehabilitative care following their release from hospital, to ensure patients recover further.
