Patient Selection

Appropriate selection of patients is important for the success of a rehabilitation program. Advanced age poses problems of physical fitness and capacity to recover and could hinder the running of a group program. This is important, as most programs are conducted in groups and inability to conform to the group could influence the recovery of the entire group. Similarly, patients with overwhelming complicating factors such as advanced cardiac and respiratory diseases and untreatable malignancies would not be appropriate [20]. Patients are also selected for admission depending on the facilities available in terms of personnel, their expertise in different disciplines and special areas of interest of the center concerned. Most units are inclined towards general neuro-rehabilitation but some units sub-specialize in areas such as cognitive and behavior therapy, spinal injury and appliance technology.
