During the plenary session, Prof.V.Kozyavkin's report "New technologies in systematic approach for the solving of problems of medical rehabilitation and social adaptation of special needs children" caused considerable interest.
The latest works of specialists of the Institute for Medical Rehabilitation were presented on satellite symposium "Intensive Neurophysiological Rehabilitation System of V.I.Kozyavkin - the INRS". They were organized within the limits of a scientific forum.
Director of Munich Children Center, Professor Hubertus von Voss, reported his foreword to the new book written by specialists of the Institute for Medical Rehabilitation:
"There's hardly another medical group working with Cerebral Palsy patients as experienced as Kozyavkin's group in Ukraine. Let's welcome another competent effort in search of the best method of treatment of Cerebral Palsy and thus treatment of disabled children, adolescents and adults. How many times would disabled patients, after they reached the treatment center of Kozyavkin's group, documentarily prove to us their astonishing results, even when in other places they only regress."
