Rehabilitation Technology

Assistive technology can be a vital adjunct to restore or compensate for lost movement.

About Rehabilitation Technology

TraumaPhysio are one of the few services in the country using digital motion analysis to improve client outcomes.

At TraumaPhysio we include rehabilitation technology within our assessment and treatment programmes in addition to exercise, hands-on therapy and functional approaches to restoring movement and activity levels. Technology is playing an increasingly important role in supporting analysis of function, increasing engagement and improving outcomes.

Movement Analysis

TraumaPhysio are one of the few centres in the UK to adopt high tech movement analysis using the ‘Baiobit’ to more accurately assess complex movements such as walking, balance, jump tests and the timed up and go test (TUAG). The Baiobit also provides augmented feedback for improved practice and learning of these fundamental tasks.

This provides a detailed picture of a client’s ability and enables the development of a data driven treatment programme and continual re-evaluation and feedback. These unique insights cannot be gained through traditional clinical measurement and the Baiobit is increasingly used in high level competitive sport.

Electrical Stimulation

Muscle stimulation and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) have proven benefits for clients recovering from muscle trauma, pain and nerve injuries. At TraumaPhysio we have experience of using electrical stimulation for both innervated and denervated tissue and have worked with a wide variety of devices. Our team have access to muscle stimulators to trial and can quickly establish protocols which form an integral part of a client’s rehabilitation programme.

Electrical muscle stimulation can be particularly useful when pain limits movement or if a client’s ability to make their muscle(s) contract is limited. This painless approach uses small currents, via adhesive or cotton electrodes on the skin, to trigger a muscle contraction and promote recovery of lost function.

Helen worked with my 88 year old Mum following her knee replacement. I was very very impressed. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive, she got my Mum full mobilised and back playing bowls. She had her operation in November 2018 and was she was back playing bowls in January 2019. My Mum has now had a refurbishment of her replacement hip and I have no hesitation in going back to her and recommending her to others.

An inner ear problem last July that developed into vestibular neuritis led to problems with the muscles, nerves and joints in my neck which caused nausea, dizziness, vision problems as well as the usual aches and pain. In February I came to the Physio4 You team in despair. Rachel did a thorough vestibular assessment and was able to reassure me that the vestibular problem was resolved. I was then given Helen’s details for the neck issues. She has been a real Godsend. She is calm, friendly, reassuring and professional. After a thorough exam in which she listened carefully to my history of symptoms, she took time to explain what the problem was and a plan for treatment going forward. This problem has caused me real anxiety at times. She set my mind at rest that I will get better. I am still undergoing treatment but there has been a vast improvement. She takes time to answer all my questions and I always leave feeling so positive. I would thoroughly recommend their services
