SOCIET ITALIANA DI MEDICINA FISICA E RIABILITATIVA
The Italian Society of Physical and Rehabilitative Medicine

Il Centro Protesi INAIL di Vigorso di Budrio, Azienda Pubblica


certificata UNI EN ISO 9001-2008, una realt unica nel
suo genere composta da una officina ortopedica, con finalit
produttive che realizza protesi e presidi ortopedici e da unarea
riabilitativa che dispone di 90 posti letto per la rieducazione in
regime di ricovero, a tempo pieno o in day hospital.
Il Centro Protesi svolge una specifica attivit
di ricerca e sperimentazione, grazie alla quale
si costruiscono e collaudano dispositivi
tecnologicamente molto avanzati e se ne
studiano nuove modalit di applicazione.
Inoltre si realizzano trattamenti altrettanto
essenziali ai fini della riabilitazione, come
quello preprotesico, che prepara il paziente
a ricevere la protesi nelle migliori condizioni
fisiche possibili ed il training di addestramento alluso della protesi, che ne consente lutilizzo ottimale.
Per ogni paziente, lquipe multidisciplinare del Centro Protesi INAIL,
composta da medico, tecnico ortopedico, infermiere, fisioterapista,
assistente sociale e psicologo elabora un preciso percorso protesicoriabilitativo, che tiene conto dellet e del tipo di disabilit fisica
posseduta nonch del contesto ambientale nel quale dovr reinserirsi
una volta tornato a casa;
- prima visita tecnico-sanitaria, con valutazione preliminare ed
individuazione del progetto protesico riabilitativo pi idoneo,
- costruzione della protesi personalizzata, con contestuale
addestramento alluso,
- verifiche periodiche e valutazione conclusiva
sono le fasi di questo programma individuale.
Al Centro Protesi accedono infortunati sul lavoro assicurati INAIL,
invalidi civili assistiti dal Servizio Sanitario
Nazionale e persone disabili provenienti da
stati europei ed extraeuropei. Per rispondere
tempestivamente alle richieste di trattamento,
vengono realizzate anche protesi temporanee,
fornite seguendo comunque il modello protesico-riabilitativo di riferimento. La particolarit
del modello operativo adottato infatti consente
di trattare anche casi gravi, con patologie
congenite e/o traumatiche, come pluriamputati,
mielolesi, amputati per vascolopatie e bambini,
accolti fin dalla prima infanzia. Per agevolare il percorso di
reinserimento, il trattamento protesico-riabilitativo integrato
da una serie di servizi specifici, come il Servizio Psicosociale
che svolge attivit di accoglienza, analisi dei bisogni, consulenza e
sostegno al paziente durante tutte le fasi del trattamento protesicoriabilitativo, il Servizio di consulenza ausili ortopedici, che comprende
una vasta area espositiva e fornisce consulenza specialistica e
dispositivi personalizzati e il Centro per la mobilit in auto, ove
un team medico-tecnico segue la persona disabile nelliter per il
conseguimento delle patenti speciali A, B, C e D, dalla verifica
sulle capacit possedute, alle
prove di guida e allinformazione
normativa, fino alle modifiche del
veicolo. Di recente introduzione
il Servizio Polispecialistico del
piede che si concretizza in una
serie di consulenze medico
specialistiche e tecniche, finalizzate a risolvere o a prevenire eventuali limitazioni funzionali
del distretto del piede anche attraverso leventuale realizzazione di plantari e/o calzature ortopediche personalizzate.

Welcome message
from Presidents

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


the Italian PRM Society (SIMFER) has been very very proud to be in charge
of the organization of the 17th European Congress of PRM in Venice in 2010.
According to ESPRM standards and aims, the programme covers:
functioning biology (basic sciences)
functioning technology (rehabilitation technology)

President
of the Congress
Alessandro Giustini

clinical sciences (PRM in special health conditions)


human functioning sciences (including epidemiology, social functioning

and related topics)


evidence based rehabilitation and management.

The title chosen for the Congress is European Rehabilitation: Quality, Evidence,
Efficacy And Effectiveness and it well expresses the objectives that the Society
has set during these first years of hard work.
The disabled persons rights are one of the key points and goals of Europes
development: the aim is to grant the best empowerment conditions
President of SIMFER
David Antonio
Fletzer

to all disabled people, on the basis of ICFs indications and principles.


We can contribute from a scientific and professional point of view on both
a national and European level, to this development, and this congress is
a very important step towards this aim.
With regards to this main goal, it has been possible to connect the 38th SIMFER
National Congress to the 17th ESPRM Congress.
Italian physiatrists, as well as those coming from other Countries, participate
with their scientific experiences in the ESPRM scientific works, but also the
SIMFER Sessions are included in the Congress Programme with the same
importance of contents and values.
Welcome in Venice.

relaxing tour, which combines many
different characteristics of Venice:
the natural beauty, craftsmanship, a
genuine fisherman village atmosphere
and the history of the earliest days.
Murano is the island famous for its
glassmaking, a traditional activity
that still preserves the ancient techniques of the past. You will admire the glass
masters at work while producing the beautiful objects which have made them
famous all over the world.
Burano is the most cheerful and one of the most populous of the lagoon
islands. Its brightly ainted houses give it the air of an Italian opera set, while the
success of its most important industries, lace making, fishing and boat building,
accounts for the well-being of its people.
Torcello can be considered the Mother of Venice and was settled between the
5th and 7thC by he fist waves of refugees from the Barbarian invasions on the
Mainland. Today the island is nearly uninhabited (residents being reduced to
12). Covered by a rich typical vegetation, Torcello preserves the most ancient
monument of the Lagoon: the solemn Basilica of Santa Maria
Assunta, founded in 639 and rebuilt in 1008, decorated with outstanding
Byzantine mosaics.
