“Seems to be made for me” (comment made by a former user from CEADAC who attended the NeuronUP presensation).
This past Friday, we had the pleasure of presenting our online platform at the Spanish National Reference Center for Brain Injury (CEADAC). Some of those present, were not only Neuro professionals, but former and present patients of the center.
We were not aware of their presence until, at the end of the presentation when the question and answer round began, and the firsts hands shot up. A man stood up and identified himself as an old patient of the center. He congratulated us for our work and suggested an idea he would have t liked to have had while doing his rehabilitation. This comment was very valuable and we are certain that it will become very useful for other users as well.
Afterwards, a young woman raised her hand, too. Her first comment was “It seems to be made for me” and also added: “I feel identified with the activities that you have presented since they are problems I face every day”.
It´s curious how a single sentence can mean so much. It meant a dose of extra motivation for all of us at NeuronUP. Though we appreciate a professional’s opinion, a patient´s point of view has special value for our team.
Everyday, we are working to develop and improve our platform, and not only to be a useful tool for rehab professionals, but also thinking about the final user, which is the real reason this project exists. As we all know, the need for cognitive rehab is not chosen, and that is why at NeuronUP, we try to make this rehab process a little easier and entertaining for all the people that, by any circumstance in life, may need to use it. We push to create activities with pretty and creative designs, with motivating processes and attractive stimuli, and most importantly, with activities that can really help the patient to make his/her daily life easier and improve his/her wellbeing, which is without a doubt, the true target of neuropsychological rehabilitation.
We are very pleased to see that we are on the right track and that, our initial objective of “chipping in” with our help in the field of Neuro Rehab, can become a solid building block for all of us in the future. Back to work!
