Amputee Academy: Phases of Rehab

What phase are you in? …and how can you progress?

A NEW APPROACH TO AMPUTEE CARE & PROGRESSION
The Amputee Academy is open to any lower or upper extremity amputee and is centered around successful patient outcomes and progression. The focus will be to assess which rehabilitation phase the patient is in and then establish how to progress to the next level! There is no charge to attend.

Come as you are, and let us help you progress!

Managing post-operative healing, learning how to progress activity level, and discovering what to expect next.

RECENT PROSTHETIC DELIVERY
Properly putting on your prosthesis plus early walking or hand control training.

MID-REHAB PHASE

LATE REHAB PHASE
Advanced walking training or everyday application of your prosthetic hand.
