Clinical-rehabilitative studies in collaboration with Auxilium

Many observational and interventional clinical studies are conducted in the cardiorespiratory and neurological areas of Auxilium Vitae, and mainly have as their object the analysis of the various aspects of rehabilitation outcomes, the physiology of exercise and the evaluation of techniques or devices, or particular treatment schemes. Some studies are conducted in the context of multicentric trials, sometimes supported by an unconditional contribution from companies producing electro-medical devices.

These studies represent a current research activity, to which the various professional figures of Auxilium Vitae contribute, which produces an important part of presentations at conferences and scientific publications, in addition to collaborations with important Italian and international rehabilitation centers.

Numerous clinical and pathophysiological studies are carried out in the cognitive-psychological field, with excellent results in particular in the evaluation of the patient with eminegligence and aphasia and in the rehabilitation of the comatose patient following a head injury.
Below there is a review of the current or recently completed cognitive-psychological studies, and some of the most recent and significant ISI publications produced.
