SEEING POSSIBILITIES NOT BARRIERS

 At United Rehab Solutions Ltd we offer bespoke transdisciplinary rehabilitation to people who have suffered catastrophic injuries. That means we offer more than just a therapy assessment and treatment plans. We work together in a unique and innovative way to enable the client to maximise their potential.  

EVERYONE TO ENGAGE IN INTERVENTION THROUGH TEAMWORK

image117

  “This approach to treatment integrates expertise and experience from the different professional disciplines. Each professional provides input to maximize each client’s individual treatment gains. The interwoven nature of the treatment programs broadens the skill sets of each therapist due to their interaction with others outside their discipline, but it also allows the team of professionals to work together to reinforce and maintain goals not normally monitored. With a truly transdisciplinary team, the typical boundaries of each professional discipline tend to disappear. Instead, each professional develops a working knowledge of their co-workers’ areas of expertise and discipline. Ultimately, the common goal – exceptional treatment progress – is achieved through the collaborative, transdisciplinary team.”

New fast test to detecting Sepsis

New fast test to detecting Sepsis (UK/Global) BBC News 19th February 2019
"A prototype has been developed in the UK by University of Strathclyde, which has worldwide ramifications in the quick diagnosis of Sepsis (also known as 'blood poisoning' or 'septicaemia').

The UK figures should give you an idea, with 250,000 cases being diagnosed each year and 52,000 of these dying, that's more than 1 in 5. Those that survive might have lost limbs or organ problems for the rest of their lives.

Disability Services For Businesses, Private And Public Premises

 

  1. Access auditing and statements.
  2. Disability Public Relations and Media Relations services.
  3. Disability mediation and arbitration.
  4. Disability awareness training.
  5. Access and egress services through the use of mobile phone and assistive technology.

These services can be provided nationally and certain internationally located businesses and service providers are already making use of them.

Interior Design Services

 

Health focused inclusive design services are also now available. These will enable people of all ages to manage major and minor health conditions within their home and workplace environments.

All design work is undertaken by a qualified interior designer who has also gained extensive work experience as an Occupational Therapist within the NHS and private healthcare sectors. These skills enable risk assessments to be undertaken on furniture purchased from ‘high street’ retailers as well as on bespoke furniture and fittings ensuring safe use. Wherever possible these are used in preference to disability specific equipment.

The services provided will be of particular relevance to Occupational Therapists, medical professionals, charities, personal injury solicitors, architects, equipment providers and manufacturers.
