BrainEx90 is a combined physiotherapy and occupational therapy treatment group, designed and implemented by Parkwood’s ABI team with a standardized assessment battery and dataset. University students and patient volunteers support the implementation of this program. Participants attend a 90-minute weekly session. Each session starts with 30-minutes of circuit training, followed by a 20-30 minute education session and ends with a second 30-minutes of circuit training. The exercises in the circuit address cognition, vision, vestibular, balance, endurance, and neck dysfunction, as well as a 10-minute 1:1 self-management session with the occupational therapist.
