Functional Neurorehabilitation - The Locomotor Quadrupedal Animal Training Adapted to the Bipedal Human

  • Ângela Martins

Abstract

This article intends to be based on the similarities between the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the quadrupedal animal and bipedal human. Through this standard explain the locomotor training of functional neurorehabilitation to both. And also demonstrate the importance of bipedal locomotor training and quadrupedal locomotor training, making the conversion of the quadrupedal locomotor training of the quadruped animal to human biped, and also demonstrate the
importance of electromyostimulation and laser therapy. In the article we conclude that the functional neurorehabilitation (FNR) should be applied as soon as possible within the limitation of spinal diseases, stroke or Parkinson’s disease, repeatedly and progressively involving the three types of training proprioceptive, fortifiation and resistance to obtain an improved mobility. With our article we also considered that more robotic locomotor training should be applied in both areas of medicine, both human and animal, looking as an evidence model the dog and cat.
