The aim of the master's thesis is to evaluate the clinic-internal strengthening concept of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPZ). The SPZ is a rehabilitation clinic for spinal cord injured people. The strengthening concept has been routinely used since 2015.
By default, the patients complete - depending on which training phase they are in - three to four strength training sessions per week. As part of the master's thesis, the development of maximum strength of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) in primary rehabilitation will be studied. It is explicitly taken care of that the patients comply with the training requirements. Furthermore, factors which prevent a consistent buildup of strength - such as medical complications (pressure sores, pneumonia, urinary tract infections) - are systematically recorded.
The findings should provide information on the effect and qualitative transfer of the existing strength concept in everyday clinical practice. The strength training performed is accompanied by the master student and documented in a standardized manner.
