Speaker: Jørgen R. Jørgensen graduated as a Physiotherapist in 1994 and as a Master of Neurorehabilitation in 2015. Since 1995, Jørgen has been employed at the Center for Rehabilitation of Brain Injury (CRBI) in Copenhagen and has been devoted to an ongoing development of physiotherapy training programs for persons with Acquired Brain Injury in collaboration with The University of Copenhagen, the Centre for Muscle Research Copenhagen, and the National Research Centre for the Working Environment.
Through Jørgen's clinical and research work, the development of training equipment has resulted in a novel approach to rehabilitation that can be characterized as highly intensive, repetitive and functional.
Jørgen continues to provide lectures and extensive courses for Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists and is co-writing books on the rehabilitation after stroke.
