Fascinating lectures and workshops with guests from all over the world. This was the conference ‘Physiotherapy of the neurological patient in the 21st century’, which took place on Saturday, 27 January, at the Lublin Conference Centre in Grottgera Street. One of the organisers of the event was the Vincent Pol University.

The aim of the conference was to promote the use of physiotherapy for patients with various neurological problems and to raise awareness of the use of robotic devices and virtual reality in the comprehensive rehabilitation of neurological patients and to raise awareness of the use of robotic devices and virtual reality in the comprehensive rehabilitation of neurological patients.

Among the invited guests were some of the country’s leading specialists who are trend-setters in neurological patient care. They have experience in some of the most prestigious centres in the country and abroad, and are currently lecturers and instructors in various physiotherapy methods.

Our university was represented by the Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Marian Przylepa, MD, PhD, Professor VPU, and the Deputy Dean of Physiotherapy, Daria Majewska, PhD.

Among the speakers we could listen to were VPU physiotherapy graduates Erik Shtaihervaldt and Kacper Kolodziej, who led a modernist and developing block entitled. “Possibilities of using robotic devices in the complex rehabilitation of neurological patients”.

On behalf of the academy authorities of the Vincent Pol University of Applied Sciences, I would like to express my pleasure at being able to organise a neurological patient conference for the second time. Vincent Pol University in 2004 was the first in Lublin to organise studies for physiotherapists. These studies have resulted in more than eight thousand physiotherapists who find employment in Poland, but also abroad, representing a high level of their education and commitment

said Professor Marian Przylepa, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, during the opening of the conference.

The conference was met with great interest. It brought together specialists from various fields of medicine, physiotherapy or speech therapy to discuss current issues and innovations in working with neurological patients. Participants had the opportunity to exchange experiences and learn about the latest research and treatment methods.

The level of this conference is extremely high. A multitude of lecturers from different universities, instructors of various neurodevelopmental methods have met here. Today’s conference is an ideal opportunity to integrate the medical community, both speech therapists, physiotherapists and neurologists, and benefit from each other’s knowledge,”

concluded PhD Daria Majewska.

The conference organisers declare that they will continue to organise events of this type to enable professionals from different medical fields as well as students to continuously develop, exchange knowledge and improve their skills.
