Who benefits from residential intensive neurorehabilitation as opposed to community therapy in the UK

Answering this question Foy CML et al from the Rehabilitation Services, Brain Injury Centre, Banstead, Surrey, UK and Sutton Hospital, look at patient functional ability following rehabilitation at a mixed therapy and educational residential programme. The clients received 5 hours of education and/or physiotherapy and occupational therapy each day.
BothTBI and nonTBI made clinically and statistically significant improvements in their functional abilities during their neurorehabilitation and benefited from a mixed inpatient neurorehabilitation programme. The movement and functional improvements was predicted by the patients functional abilities at admission and the length of stay. Therefore preinjury and injury variables do give insight into functional recovery in traumatic brain injury (TBI) and non traumatic brain injury (nonTBI) patients.
