Our service

We provide artificial replacements for patients who are missing a limb. These are known as “prostheses.” Prostheses enhance function and improve lifestyle for people who have lost limbs.

We run individual and group classes in the following areas:

  • Falls Prevention class which is offered to patients who have a Prosthetic limb and are deemed to be at an increased risk of falls due to decreased balance.
  • Hydrotherapy (therapy in water)
  • Advanced classes for prosthetic users to help you strengthen and to teach you how to go on to use community gyms safely
  • Improving upper body strength for wheelchair users
