About Campaignends 23 Apr 2021, 11:59 PM
Physiotherapy (PT) is one of the Allied Health services provided by CPAS. Our team of physiotherapists provide comprehensive assessment & customized treatment to improve gross motor functioning. Gross motor skills involve movements of the large muscles of the arms, legs, & torso in activities such as sitting, standing, walking with or without a mobility & running.
At present more than 50% of our clients are classified at GMFCS Levels IV and V which means that most of them have physical limitations, making them entirely dependent on mobility aids such as assisted walker & wheelchairs for their functional needs.
PT hopes to procure equipment that could be used to achieve better therapy outcomes. With technology as a key enabler, initiatives such as the Physitrack App was introduced over the circuit breaker to empower caregivers to conduct prescribed therapy sessions at home.
Advanced rehabilitative technology such as the AlterG, an Anti Gravity threadmill & the Motek CMill VR+, an interactive equipment that provides visual & audio stimuli to make therapy fun, have been introduced. These equipment provide real time data that allows our physiotherapists to make changes, track the effectiveness of therapy and make informed decisions.
Your donation will help us to maintain & improve our therapy services.
