Svitla Systems is a regular supporter of the charity project initiated by the Neurological and Neurosurgical Rehabilitation Research Centre, “NODUS”, which was specifically established for wounded Ukrainian soldiers.
Ukraine has been defending against Russian hostility at its borders since 2014. Many of the wounded Ukrainian soldiers have become disabled and have poor prospects for the future. In August 2014, the Neurological and Neurosurgical Rehabilitation Research Centre, "NODUS", launched its non-profit Charity Project for wounded Ukrainian soldiers with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord traumas suffered during the war.
Within the framework of the Charity Project, medical care is provided to both servicemen and soldier-volunteers and in both in outpatient and clinic-based programs. As of June 2017, 149 Ukrainian soldiers have gone through individual rehabilitation programs. At the present time, 400 wounded soldiers are on the waiting list to be admitted to the clinic, which means that NODUS services, the Charity Project, are very much needed.
Highly-specialized tailored neurorehabilitation is designed to restore damaged and lost functions. Rehabilitation for each patient is protracted, lasting a minimum of three to six months on average, and may run up to 12 months or longer.
Svitla Systems is proud to be a part of this program and support wounded Ukrainian soldiers on their way to recovery.
