Staying strong and healthy

Our occupational therapists and physiotherapists can work with you to:

  • Help you to achieve comfortable positioning throughout the day and night to improve the quality of life and reduce the risk of pressure injuries, pain and discomfort.
  • Enhance your strength and flexibility so that you can continue to engage in daily living tasks of your choice.
  • Select appropriate positioning equipment like wheelchairs, electric beds and specialised cushions and mattresses.
  • Select splints and orthotics for your upper and lower limbs.

Our physiotherapists can also provide chest care exercises and techniques to help you clear your airways when necessary. Chest care requires a letter and referral by a medical officer.
