However, rehabilitation programs take various different approaches. Here we will explain how to choose a state of the art rehab program.

Rehab Elements:

The ideal rehab program consists of these three elements:

1. A Basic Rehabilitation program

• What kind of technology does the clinic use? The most state of the art clinics use robotic driven movement programs

3. Specialized staff

• The more specialist staff on hand, the better

• Check what therapists are available in a clinic. A top clinic employs numerous specialists who focus on fields such as regaining sight as well as shoulder and finger motor function, etc.

Alertness, mobility, walking, swallowing, speaking, blurred vision, urological disorders, cognitive disorders, pain, spasticity (tight muscles)


Depending on the specific rehab program, you should allow an average of one to two months to get back to normality after a severe injury.


A quality rehabilitation program is expensive, with an average daily fee of around 3000 CHF. This requires an investment of 90.000–180.000 CHF for a one to two-month treatment. If you are traveling to Switzerland from abroad, you need to include travel costs and as well as other incidental costs such as accommodation for family members.

Curation rates:
