Innovative treatment for coma patients

With the Brain Stimulation Center (BSC) at the clinic site in Allensbach, Kliniken Schmieder created an innovative treatment offer for patients in coma or with disorders of consciousness, like Minimally Conscious State (MSC) or Unresponsive Wakefulness Syndrome.

After a severe brain damage, caused for example by an accident, an inflammatory disease, or a stroke, it takes time as well as the right treatment to support the patient in the recovery in the best possible way. The non-invasive brain stimulation helps to increase the activity of the nerve cells in the brain. Depending on the type of disease as well as the needs of the patient, it can be done pharmacological or non-pharmacological with transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Another possibility, which is offered in Kliniken Schmieder, is the treatment of dysphagia with pharyngeal stimulation.

Besides an interdisciplinary rehabilitation treatment, patients in the Brain Stimulation Center receive intensive cognitive training, to support the recovery of the brain functions. To ensure that the treatment is state-of-the-art and based on the latest scientific findings, Kliniken Schmieder work together with external specialists like the Coma Science Group.
