The Charitable Foundation Zaporuka rehabilitation team consists of specialists who always have an individual approach to each kid. They are always in contact with the kid’s attending doctor to determine whether they are ready to resume movement.
It is often difficult for children to gather all their strength on training, but the specialists always know how to motivate them and encourage them to achieve positive results.
As of the 3rd quarter of 2021, the Charitable Foundation Zaporuka rehabilitation specialists conducted 157 sessions for 18 kids. With regular sessions and individual approach, the children took their first steps to recovery, trained their knee joints and started to believe that life after the hospital was possible.
One of the best examples is the story of Olexandr, who, in September 2020, after an injury was admitted to the National Cancer Institute. After the surgery in December, rehabilitation specialists began working with the boy. Rehabilitation was aimed at solving the problem of stiffness in the knee joint and the flexion angle of fewer than 50 degrees.
In February, the boy already learned to walk without crutches, and the flexion angle in the knee joint reached 95 degrees. Since April, Sasha was working on simulators with maximum load, he was concentrated on walking. He has begun to work a lot individually from June, and soon he could walk on crutches without limping.
Sasha continued working with maximum load. Regular training helped him recover, and now he is practicing on his own.
In 2021, the rehabilitation project is implemented thanks to the grant from Winner Group Ukraine. We are grateful to our partners for their ongoing support of our children’s every step.
