We make it economically realistic and practically possible to deliver on research recommendations to achieve: Increased brain-body interaction (agency), improved ability to learn new skills and self confidence.
Mitii’s aim is for the individual to improve and develop motoric and cognitive skills. In Caroline’s case, development could be seen on several fronts. “We have often described it as an eye-opener for Caroline. We found that she gained a new insight into many things and situations. For example: she could discuss things and then later reflect over aspects of the conversation which she would previously never have done. It became easier for her to see a problem and decide ‘that’s a bad idea’ or ‘yes, that’s what we’ll do’,” explained Caroline’s mother.
Just before Carsten started training with Mitii, he was examined at Aarhus Hospital. The doctor explained that readings indicated that the balance organs in his head had almost completely disappeared, and that he was compensating by using his sight and senses in his legs. The specialist wanted to show Carsten to his students. “Looking back, it’s interesting that he did not think training would help much, but he was certainly interested in seeing me again after the Mitii course. When I turned up again eight months later, there were such remarkable improvements in my condition that he could no longer use me as an example of the problem for his students!”
Cæcilie’s mother is in no doubt that her daughter made significant progress – during and after training with Mitii. “We could see the effect was a major boost for Cæcilie – apart from the physical aspects, her reading ability became much better. She found it easier to remember, and was generally a lot faster on the uptake. Her linguistic abilities developed, and she showed greater willingness to try things. The fact that she improved physically was probably the biggest gain, as it gave her confidence to move forwards,” says Karin.
