Our Partners and we work closely to provide patients with advanced and quality products that will function in their rehabilitation process. We constantly learn from our partners and keep up to date with their technological advances in the field of bracing and supports.
Our approach to clinical care is based on the FICO concept:
Making sure the brace is doing what it was prescribed for according to the Dr's referral and evaluation made.
Checking if the patient can function independently with the brace while mobilizing and can independently put the brace on.
Examining if the patient is comfortable while wearing the brace and with the process of putting it on independently.
Making sure that the rehabilitation goals have been met and that the patient feels they have had a positive experience.
