    ARISS contact planned for children’s hospital in Switzerland

    Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at approximately 14.21 UTC, an ARISS contact is planned for Rehabilitationszentrum für Kinder und Jugendliche, Affoltern am Albis, Switzerland.

    The Rehabilitation Center in Affoltern am Albis belongs to the Children’s University Hospital Zurich. The center is specialized in the treatment of children and adolescents who suffer from congenital or acquired diseases and injuries. Each rehabilitation process aims at allowing the patient to achieve as much functional independence as possible, helping them and their families to obtain greater quality of life.

    The children and teenagers stay in family-like living groups that correspond with their individual skills and needs. They are taught in small groups in the hospital school and each patient follows their own individual therapy schedule. Pediatric rehabilitation is carried out in collaboration between professionals such as doctors, nurses, therapists, neuropsychologists and therapeutic pedagogues. Working in close cooperation with the families is considered very important and forms an essential part of the patient’s treatment program.

    This will be a direct radio contact operated by HB9TSO. The conversation will be conducted in English. Downlink signals will be audible in Europe on 145.800 MHz FM.
