Blatchford Clinic has now launched a new residential rehabilitation programme for amputees and patients requiring orthotic intervention in partnership with STEPS Rehabilitation at their purpose-built facility in Sheffield.
Clinical outcomes can be greatly improved when combined with a tailored programme of rehabilitation, helping the patient return, as near as possible, to their preinjury level of independence. The programme has been designed to allow swift provision of the patient’s prosthetic or orthotic device whilst receiving daily therapy sessions to maximise their mobility, independence and general well-being.
Patients are able to stay at the STEPS rehab centre in Sheffield, where accommodation and all treatment is delivered under the one roof. The state-of-the-art centre provides an enabling and positive environment with a fully equipped rehab gym, hydrotherapy pool, clinical treatment areas, outdoor all terrain environment and skills kitchen.
Intensive treatment is provided from a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team including Prosthetist, Orthotist, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, Consultant in Anaesthetic and Pain Medicine, Psychologist and nursing staff.
Several patients have been treated under the new residential rehabilitation programme already, with excellent results.
