Furnishings and equipment

The building, which opened in 2007, was designed to meet the needs of our patients in every respect: bright, spacious rooms sized for wheelchair users - some with a view over the Rhine valley and Siebengebirge, all equipped with: barrier-free bathrooms; telephone, internet, and TV, that can also be operated by highly paralysed patients, with head, mouth, or voice controls; patient lift systems; the possibility of ventilation and monitor monitoring.

Therapies at the Neurological Rehabilitation Centre Godeshöhe

For the best possible treatment and therapy, we also have a wide range of therapy facilities and training equipment according to the latest standards - including robot-assisted rehabilitation, a gym, and a swimming pool.


Cooperation with Bonn University Hospital

Our Paraplegic Centre is supported by the University Hospital Bonn. Through this close cooperation, all the therapeutic options of the university hospital are available to us. All surgical interventions for the treatment of complications typical of paralysis, or for the treatment of other diseases not related to paralysis, are performed there.
