On 30th November 2018 Proactive and Re:medy Healthcare, were proud to host a workshop based, educational seminar exploring the complex journey through rehabilitation following limb loss.
The unique value that the team at Re:medy bring to this journey is their military experience in providing multi-disciplinary rehabilitation in highly complex major trauma for active individuals. They are the experts in this field and fully understand the value and importance of early, co-ordinated intervention, in all aspects of recovery, to facilitate the best possible outcomes; getting ‘fitter quicker’. These values are mirrored at Proactive and together we provide the best possible results for patients following limb loss.
The day began with a welcome and introduction to this complex journey by Richard Nieveen and Dr Ian McCurdie followed by sessions on restoring function following upper and lower limb loss by Allyson Ballard, Alan McDougall, Christophe Cointet after which a consideration of the psychological impact of major trauma was led by Dr Matt Beadman.
Workshops followed, demonstrating gait re-education and prosthetic innovations, exploring pain management and the practical implications of finding the best pathway to recovery.
The day was rounded up with a panel Q&A discussion before drinks and networking.
