More than 175 pages of information on Acquired Brain Injury
Acquired brain injury (ABI) is damage to the brains which arose after birth as a result of an illness or an accident. Typically, there is an irreversible breakdown in lifeline. ABI can result in cognitive, physical, emotional or behavioural impairments that lead to permanent changes in functional ability.
Everything that was previously taken for granted, cannot be taken for granted anymore. Often, but not always, a person has to rely on help in daily life.

THIS WEB SITE ...
Our aim with this website is to be a guide by using a lot of visual support in the form of pictures and videos. We also use so-called "white space" or blank lines to help those who are easily overstimulated by text.
We aim to create a place where you can find info and videos that can give you a quick understanding. It is created for people without medical knowledge.
If a medical term is included, it is because you can use it along with the proper search term in an internet search. We want the website to take a position as a knowledge broker. That is a new term for a bridge between theory and practice, expertise and experience.
We also want to build bridges to other websites through many links. We do not want to reinvent the wheel. Some sites are indeed specialized.

We would like to complete the puzzle together, or at least make the puzzle a little more complete..
