Equipment & Technologies

We are acutely aware of how important it is for people try out exercise equipment and / or an orthotic before deciding on its therapeutic / functional value. We therefore keep various items in stock to allow people to use pieces which we feel are of therapeutic / functional value during their treatment session.

If someone needs to trial specific equipment at home rather than in a therapy session we may be able to loan it out at no charge.

Certain pieces of more value we allow you to trial through a more formal loan agreement for a fee over a specific period of time.

We can also refer you onto various reputable companies to enable you buy equipment and products or suggest you are assessed by Orthotist for further advice and / or a bespoke orthosis.

The Saeboflex

The SaeboFlex positions the wrist and fingers into extension in preparation for functional activities.

The user is able to grasp an object by voluntarily flexing his or her fingers. The extension spring system assists in re-opening the hand to release the object.

This custom, dynamic hand splint enables certain people who are still unable to grip and release with their hands but who have regained some shoulder and elbow movement after a Stroke, Brain Injury or Spinal Injury, to perform grasp and release exercises that have previously been impossible for them.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)

Neuromuscular Electrical StimulationNeuro Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) is a treatment that can benefit people with an upper neurone injury irrespective of what the cause of the damage to the central nervous system is & can be used to assist with hip and knee control in more complex walking problems, to strengthen weak muscles and reduce spastic hypertonia.

  • It is a technique used to produce contractions in weak or paralysed muscles.
  • Small electrodes placed over the muscles produce a controlled electrical stimulation to nerves that supply the weak muscle.
  • The stimulation is controlled in such a way that the movement produced provides useful functional movement (FES).

With extensive years of clinical practice in NMES, we are recognised providers for Pace Foot drop stimulator, Walkaide Footdrop and Ottobock Stiwell 4

Orthotics

An Orthosis is an external device used to modify the structural or functional characteristics of the neuromuscular system and is named after the body section over which it acts e.g an Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) may be used to help someone with a ‘foot drop’. Therapeutically an Orthosis may be used to improve stability and alignment, limit or prevent movement, relieve pain and change sensory input.

We are recognised providers for the Turbomed and can provide an assessment with the orthotic to enable you to decide if it serves your purpose effectively.

We work in partnership with The London Orthotic Consultancy to ensure you receive comprehensive orthotic care.
