A new playing module is mounted on the playground of Ilizarov park. It is a sensory labyrinth for handicapped children. The opening of the labyrinth was dedicated to the International Day of Peace. A sponsor of the project is the “EKAMED” company, a long-standing partner of the Ilizarov Centre. The labyrinth construction is accessible for children of different age and capacities including those on wheel-chairs. This playground is a part of the Centre’s concept of so-called “Friendly environment”. The idea is to give as much comfort to patients during their treatment in the clinic as possible, to create a home-like atmosphere for children, to distract them from stress and to stimulate rehabilitation and social adaptation.
The international masterclass on “Application of the Ilizarov transosseous osteosynthesis and intramedullary blocking nail in treatment of long bone pathologies in small pets” was held on the 19-20th of September in Jelgava, Latvia.
The training was guided by senior researcher of the Ilizarov Center Andrey Emanov on the base of veterinary faculty of Latvian Agricultural University. Fifteen attendees – veterinary surgeons from the European Union (Latvia, Lithuania) participated in the masterclass.
