About the sponsor

Pôle Saint Hélier

The Saint Hélier Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) Centre, located in Rennes, France, specialises in the treatment of neurological and locomotor diseases (amputees, orthopaedic and trauma patients, etc.). The expertise of this establishment is also recognised as a referential at regional level and throughout Western France for serious neurological conditions (brain or brain stem injuries, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, emergence from coma, etc.). The PMR Centre admits only adult patients who require a medical consultation or rehabilitation and re-education in a situation of full-time hospitalisation, day hospital visits or outpatient treatment.
As part of its overall strategy, the Saint Hélier Centre is developing an outside the box treatment policy and has introduced several innovative devices in recent years, including day hospital, mobile team, integration unit, educational therapy, home hospitalisation and telemedicine. The unit also includes an 87-place nursing home, an approved training organisation, a research unit and a living lab.
With its expertise in the treatment of chronic complex wounds (such as sores and ulcers), the centre has been providing telemedicine treatment to make caring for the patient easier since 2013.
