Description: The sale of Christmas tags is the basis for the establishment and operation of the Christmas tag homes around Denmark. The purpose of the homes is to house and help vulnerable and particularly needy children. Many of the Christmas tag children come from the big cities. Funds may be tight here, and the children may be left to fend for themselves and life in the wretched backyards. At the Christmas mark homes, they can receive care, fresh air and get back to work after illness. The film follows daily life at the various Christmas mark homes in Denmark: Lindersvold in Faxe, the Mørkøv home in Northwest Zealand, Fjordmark by Flensborg Fjord, Holbølls Minde by Svendborg, the Hobro home by Mariager Fjord and the Christmas mark home in Juelsminde.
Several of the recordings can also be seen in the film 'The Christmas Tag Film' from 1949.

Frk. Wagners instruktionsfilm

Country: Denmark

Description: The film shows part of the physical treatment of polio: Warm packs, so-called Kennedy packs, are given to relieve the pain and prevent contractures. Concentrated compresses and manipulation of the thorax (chest) are given to make it smoother and thereby facilitate respiration. The packs are changed until the skin is red. Manipulation is given of the entire thorax. A very important step in the treatment of contracture strencks. When the contracture first occurs, the muscles' working capacity is significantly reduced. Therefore, the stretches are started as early as possible, but only until the pain limit and everything after prior warming up. In order that stretching and fixing can take place as correctly as possible, there should be two physiotherapists about the patient. One to fix the patient and one to pull. Stimulation of muscles is performed by the physiotherapist as a light vibration of the muscle group in one direction of movement. Another important part of the treatment is balance exercises. In order to achieve as correct a gait as possible, all patients, regardless of the degree of paralysis, should do balance exercises, i.e. put the weight equally on both legs, keep the pelvis in place and have a good posture. These exercises are also done with two physiotherapists.
