At Hanoi, Mr.Hirai has been working from 2017 until now in the Viet Duc – Kitahara project for improving the rehabilitation for neurological patients.


 The Vietnamese staff update new knowledge and techniques about neuro-rehabilitation from Japanese staff. They already got the Japan training.


Kitahara experts provide treatment to patients after neurological diseases who have difficulty walking and also who cannot use their hands skillfully.


 The causes of dysfunction after neurological diseases are not only the problem of the muscle such as muscle weakness but also the problems of the nerve and the brain. The brain orders the information for movement and sensory to the muscle.

 Kitahara staff with well- trained and enough knowledge of the brain and nerve function can provides appropriate rehabilitation service for a neurological patient.  


The rehabilitation treatment is not only passive therapy like a massage. Patients will positively learn good posture and how to move their body smoothly. If patients could get the ability of them they would reduce the burden of physical and mental and could expect the recovery of the function for the future.


 We advise how the patients can use the hand and the leg that were paralyzed in daily life.
