The Korea Home Visit Rehabilitation Center is a rehabilitation center for patients suffered from brain diseases. Director Chanwoo Kim studied physical therapy at Kangwon National University and obtained a master degree and completed a doctoral course. He worked for the Catholic University of Korea Incheon St. Mary’s Hospital for 11 years from 2008 to 2019 as a physical therapist. He also served as an adjunct professor at his alma mater from 2019 to 2022. Having built 16 years of clinical experience and knowledge in the field alongside publishing 10 papers including 4 SCI, he opened the Korea Home Visit Rehabilitation Center in order to give more effective and efficient services.

Gait training, says Kim, is one of the most important exercises when it comes to rehabilitation as brain diseases commonly damages walking. The therapist can measure the progress of the patient by watching the gait. To make this observation and application more systematic, the center is running a walking analysis device called G-Walk and it is the first time among rehabilitation centers in the nation according to him. 

G-Walk is developed by an Italian BTS Bio Engineering that has built R&D capabilities in the field of motion analysis technologies since 1986. The sensors loaded in G-Walk collect, analyze and transmit the data and brings up a report. This gives the therapist an objective information and thus ideal exercise plans and implementations. 

“It think using scientific and objective data is very important to give more effective and efficient therapies to patients. Also important is teaming up the highly acclaimed experts in the field on which I invite from renowned university hospitals in Seoul. I and my expert teams are working in cooperation to find and give most effective rehab programs to each different patient and each case.” says Kim. <PowerKorea>
