Speaking to another amputee can make a real difference to your recovery and ease your concerns. We call this type of assistance Peer Support.
Following surgery, you will need time to recover. It is also a time to set goals about your journey ahead. Here, we help to guide you through the process to navigate your pathways forward.
Effectively managing your short and long term health will lead to better outcomes and prevent future problems.
Getting the right kind of prosthesis to suit your lifestyle needs and daily level of activity is important.
People are often concerned about the costs involved in getting a prosthesis. In Australia, there are a number of different funding schemes and it can be easy to get confused and to know what you are eligible for.
