Dubai: Aviv Clinics Dubai, a subsidiary of DP World, introduces “Aviv Cares,” an initiative aimed at providing financial support for the evaluation and treatment of children facing intricate neurological conditions.
Aviv Clinics Dubai firmly believes every child in the UAE deserves equal opportunities to flourish and excel regardless of their financial situation or condition. It offers a thorough 3-day evaluation for children under 18, who suffer from neurological conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, traumatic brain injuries and stroke.
The assessment will look at cognitive and physical abilities using a variety of tests, including the most advanced brain imaging tests, to identify the root cause of the child’s condition and determine the treatment options.
The Aviv Youth Medical Program utilizes Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), neurocognitive training, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy as core components of the treatment. The evaluation will be covered under the Aviv Cares Initiative, in addition to the treatment for eligible children committed to making cutting-edge treatments more accessible to children who can benefit from them.
A recent study in Nature Scientific Reports focused on the program, highlighting the effectiveness of HBOT in treating children with persistent post-concussion syndrome (PPCS). The study found that HBOT can help repair damaged brain tissue and improve cognitive and behavioural function. It added that the treatment improved the overall quality of life for pediatric patients with PPCS, even years after their injury. The innovative approach to treatment offered by the Aviv Youth Medical Program brings hope and healing to children with neurological medical conditions.
