The 30th December took place the traditional Christmas Skiing for patients of pediatric rehabilitation. Accompanied by their family and monitors, children enjoyed a different day, outdoors, in a all-day skiing that they will never forget!
The Institut Guttmann organizes sports outings regularly to the natural surroundings for people with disabilities (adults, youth and children) so that they can be introduced to various sports and play them in an outdoor and different environment, contributing to their health and state of mind.
Last Sunday morning, a group of children patients who do rehabilitation in the hospital could enjoy a very special day participating in a football match with soccer players Carles Puyol and Eric Abidal at the Miniestadi of Futbol Club Barcelona.
After passing, one by one, between a very special corridor of the hand of Puyol and Abidal while their team-mate encouraged them, our pediatric patients played the soccer match with the two players, each one captain of a different team.
Institut Guttmann has been recognized for the second time with the EMAS Certification (Community Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) as a sign of their commitment to maintaining an exemplary environmental management beyond the regulatory layers.
EMAS recognizes the continuous improvement of the Institution in the verification of the controls and audits in matters of environmental responsibility.
Mrs. Dolors Bassa, Minister of Employment, Social Affairs and Family, and Mr. Rafael Ribó, Ombudsman of the Generalitat de Catalunya, both accompanied by Dr. Josep M Ramirez, Director of the Institut Guttmann, closed the 28th Institut Guttmann Technical Symposia; a scientific event, this year entitled "Empowerment, personal autonomy and neuroethics”.
2016 Sports Games of the Institut Guttmann will be held on 14th and 15th October, offering everyone, as every year, the possibility of practice different adapted sports in order to show patients the great possibilities and modalities existing to practice sport when the rehabilitation process finishes.
Tommy Robredo and the Institut Guttmann sign a collaboration agreement for the practice of this sport by the hospital patients. Adults, young and children will include, depending on their clinical evolution, tennis as part of the neurorehabilitation process.
