Advanced therapy in traumatic brain injury inpatient rehabilitation may lead to better outcomes

Takeaway

  • Increasing the percentage of advanced therapy (AdvTx) targeting higher level functions than indicated by the current level of ability in traumatic brain injury (TBI) may benefit outcome and spur recovery.

Why this matters

  • Conventional rehabilitation strategies may be progressing toward an update to reflect the need to engage, motivate and challenge patients beyond what their abilities indicate upon assessment.
