The Rehabilitation Center of the North – Dr. Ferreira Alves it’s a new department of the Hospital, opened at the beginning of 2014 in Vila Nova de Gaia. Vila Nova de Gaia it’s the second biggest city of Portugal, located in the Oporto District in the north of the country on the Atlantic coast, just in front of the sea.
The Center is completely dedicated to the rehabilitation of patients with movement and neurological disorders, and it is the first Gait Analysis Laboratory in Portugal, equipped with BTS technology!
The lab has been installed with the collaboration of our local partner Enraf Nonius Iberica and has all the BTS GAITLAB components. Thanks to these devices the Center will offer a better diagnosis and care of gait pathologies, improving the analysis system.
Even if the Country praises other laboratories installed in Universities, this is the very first clinical one. The Rehabilitation Center of the North – Dr. Ferreira Alves, with its complete range of services and advanced medical tools, will become the focal point for both the national care system and for patients who come from abroad.
