MEB was born of the desire to find solutions for a better life.
We are a group of professionals who come from the field of neurological rehabilitation - occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists and other professionals from the health and social sector. We transfer to the clinic the current knowledge offered by neuroscience and social health research.
From a clinical point of view, we bring our experience and specialisation of the nervous system, based on a constant updating of knowledge during the last twenty years. During this time, our objective has always been to find the best solutions to the unique circumstances of each patient, each person.
Our intervention is aimed at people affected by acquired brain damage, neurodegenerative diseases, spinal cord injury, dysfunctional states of the nervous system and all those who, for any reason, have lost their level of autonomy.
