“After speaking with patients, rehabilitation doctors and therapists, it became clear that rehabilitation after an amputation is a task for specialists. The ‘Mobile after amputation’ initiative promotes exactly this.“
Matthias Regenhardt, Market Manager in charge of “Mobile after amputation” at Ottobock
The concept behind “Mobile after amputation” centres on close collaboration throughout the entire treatment process – from the operation to rehabilitation to adjusting the prosthesis. An interdisciplinary team from Germany explains how the exchange of ideas works within the team:
- Dr Jennifer Ernst from Universitätsmedizin Göttingen (University hospital) speaks about getting the participants involved even before the operation.
- O&P professional Christian Haupt describes his role in the treatment team and explains the importance of getting patients moving early on with the Kenevo rehabilitation prosthesis.
- Physiotherapist Markus Otto explains how he supports successful rehabilitation with gait training in particular.
- Balazs Polonyi, Managing Director at Ottobock Hungary, offers an insight into how the concept is being implemented in his market.
