ARNI method - general information
The ARNI method is a specific training developed by clinical and university researches for survivors of stroke, survivors of brain injuries, based on self-controlled strategy.
This specific training method has been known and taught in England more 20 years. The number of educated trainers is in the hundreds and growing.
The ARNI method is up to date. Research is continuously going on regarding the method and the most effective procedures of it. Several research centres, hospitals and universities are examining the topic in the UK. It is a widely understood fact, that stroke is followed by an intense physical disability.
By using the ARNI method, participants and patients can overcome their fears and effectively improve their self-confidence.
The patient, treated by the ARNI method, learns how to sit up and stand up in a very short period of time Thus, he gains psychical strength, which helps him to continue the exercises, that at most of the times, require huge willpower and intension.
When elaborating the ARNI method, our aim was to work out exercises that do not cause pain and that help patients to get back to their functional, active everyday life as soon as possible. Where they can directly experience, that getting dressed becomes easier day by day, that they are able to walk without any medical aids, that they can raise their arms, they can sign their names and they are able to continue their hobbies, which delights them.
The ARNI Institute is to train and provide specialist instructors & therapists. They will teach you the ARNI functional ‘retraining’ strategies and will support you to take charge of your own recovery via these principles.
Stroke survivors want to be more independent but usually need help to do so. Our aim is to take you from the stage where an NHS therapist becomes unavailable, to the stage where you can go on to make the activities of your daily life part of the ‘retraining’ you do to help yourself.
Current neurological scientific research supports the premise that your brain has the ability to positively adapt to assist recovery of lost function after stroke .
