In February 2016, Metaco Charity Foundation financed the rehabilitation of two-year-old Daniela Oganesyan at the Galileo Med Medical Centre

DanielaOgonisjan_022016_2DanielaOgonisjan_022016_1Daniela and David Oganesyan are wonderful two-year-old twins. Unfortunately, they not only share a birthday, but also the condition of cerebral palsy. Both children were born prematurely at 23 weeks and endured complicated births, placental abruption and low birth weight (620 and 520 grams respectively), which left them both in critical condition, with their chances of survival being extremely slim.

Even with disappointing diagnoses of hydrocephalus, severe CNS damage and partial atrophy of the optic nerves, their parents are confident that the diagnoses are not a sentence and continue to fight in any way they can, including regular classes, gymnastics, massage and rehabilitative procedures for them both. The twins are experiencing positive results and can now raise their heads, roll over onto their stomachs, manipulate toys in both hands, and are even known to babble. Their parents, although very pleased with their progress so far are fully aware that the most important thing is to build on the twins’ successes and move forward with their rehabilitation.

At the request of Ruzanna, the mother of David and Daniela our Foundation paid for a rehabilitation course at the Galileo Med Medical Centre for Daniela.DanielaOgonisjan_022016

This course included training based on Vaclav Vojta’s technique, which incorporates the use of a Galileo vibration plate, kinesiotaping and logopedic massage. The subsequent improvements are significant: Daniela’s back has straightened, spasticity has decreased, she began to operate with her hands more confidently and use them for support and she also started trying to crawl. We are very pleased that our help was timely and effective.
