Amputations

We provide outpatient amputation rehabilitation

The loss of a lower limb has severe implications for a person’s mobility, and ability to perform activities of daily living. This may negatively impact their participation and integration into society. The ultimate goal of rehabilitation after limb loss is to ambulate successfully with the use of a prosthesis and to return to a high level of social reintegration. Prosthetic rehabilitation is a complex task that ideally requires input from a transdisciplinary rehabilitation team like ours.
