NEW PROJECTS

 Return to life with Polytrauma pilates for victims of traffic accidents or acts of physical violence

In this newly started project, we will be using advanced Pilates-based training to rehabilitate persons with complex injuries, to enable them to get back to a functional and more meaningful life. Our rehabilitation program is developed in collaboration with specialists from the United States and is currently attended by returned, seriously injured soldiers. The program has been a huge success, with 4 years of protocol studies yielding positive results. We now offer civilian victims of traffic accidents or physical violence the opportunity to receive the same specialized training. The project is supported by the Victims’ Foundation, and the training is free of charge.
