QUALITY CARE & OUTCOME
EXPERIENCED, DEDICATED THERAPISTS
Amputations / Prosthetic Training
At United Medical Rehabilitation Hospital, the initial physical rehabilitation goals for your inpatient stay would primarily be focused on performing basic activities that you are accustomed to doing for optimal level of functioning. Our goals focus on bringing you to your highest potential of mobility in regards to functional transfers and restoring and improving your range of motion to prevent contractures at the hip and/or knee. We have designed learning modules and will incorporate them into your goals and plan of care during your stay to include such items as transfer safety, wheelchair and device utilization, as well as energy conservation. Achieving independence with home exercise, edema control, skin management and desensitization techniques are other important goals for our patients.
