Out-patient services - Amputee Program - GF Strong

The Amputee Outpatient Program provides pre and post prosthetic rehabilitation for people with lower and upper extremity amputations.  Prosthetic rehabilitation is the process of learning skills that enable the amputee to return to a functional lifestyle.  It involves learning to care for your skin and prosthesis, relearning basic mobility (getting up off the floor, climbing stairs and walking on uneven and incline surfaces), learning to perform activities of daily living and learning skills to help with the emotional adjustment to limb loss. Some people will need to relearn aspects of a job if returning to work is a goal.

Our services and team

The rehabilitation team may include a Physiatrist (rehab doctor), Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, and Social Worker, depending on the person?s needs.  The team will also work closely with the person?s prosthetist (private). Access to services from Psychology, Dietary, Sexual Health, Vocational Rehab and Driver?s Rehab are also available if required.
