Description:

Functional neurorehabilitation (FNR) is an alternative approach to improve patient’s quality of life. FNR has neuroanatomical foundations and is based on two properties of the central nervous system (CNS), which are present both in human biped and quadruped animal: neuroplasticity and neuromodulation. The dog and cat models, by their very own characteristics, become an evidence model for the human biped. In the human biped we can apply locomotor training according to the norms of locomotor training for fitive locomotion in quadruped.
