Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Services
As an integral part of your rehabilitation team, we offer specialist neuromuscular services including Assessment, Diagnostic Testing and the supply of functional gait re-training aids, assistive devices, and custom-made bracing for weak, spastic or contracted limbs.
The clinicians at Orthotic Solutions Qld offer the skills to assess clients personal goals, muscle strength, joint movement and mobility requirements in order to design an appropriate device to improve Comfort, Function and Stability for Sitting, Standing or Walking.
Orthotic Solutions Qld is leading the way to ensure our clients receive the very latest technology in energy storing AFO, RGO’s, Stance Control KAFO’s and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES).
Diagnostic Testing involves the use of temporary walking casts, joint control devices, or stance control systems to determine the effectiveness of assistive walking devices such as AFOs, Knee Orthoses and Stance control KAFOs.
Diagnostic Testing is an important tool for complex neuromuscular clients, as it measures the effectiveness of an assistive walking device, and also helps our clinicians determine the specific alignment, function and design characteristics the definitive device.
Our Diagnostic Testing procedures can be performed in the safety of parallel bars, with a waking frame or aid, and if required, in the presence of your therapist.
