Apps to aid neuro-rehabilitation

Over the next few weeks we will be adding to this page so please keep checking for updates.

There are a number of Apps that NHS specialists and patients have selected that have aided recovery and rehabilitation.

We also have experience of using some of these apps to help to improve brain functioning post-injury and have seen the difference they can make.

The website contains fun Apps that focus on:

Being active
