James Manning and Catherine Gorman of Godolphin Seymour recently had the opportunity to see first hand the new Biometric Rehabilitation Program that Seymour Health is planning to implement in their Hand Therapy Clinic at the Ambulatory Care Centre.
The Biometric E-Link Therapy allows a client to be evaluated and a treatment program put in place to treat any problem relative to the hand or upper extremity.
Rehabilitation can start within days of an injury or surgery and continue right through until the patient returns to an optimal range.
This system is currently used worldwide, allowing for evaluation and exercise for many complex hand issues for numerous conditions, including: stroke rehabilitation, fractures, amputations, carpel tunnel syndrome, tendon transfers, arthritis, radial nerve injury, and joint replacements.
The morning concluded with Mr Manning presenting a cheque for $5000 to Seymour Health’s chief executive officer Chris McDonnell, occupational therapist John Panchoo and Ambulatory Care Centre co-ordinator Julie Crook.
