Over the last 3 years, we have refined our work simulation WorkGainTM Program to provide timely and cost effective information pertaining to true task specific functional ability and work capacity. The program can be tailored to almost any work situation. There is extensive research supporting the benefits of combining Physiotherapy treatment with work activity, work psychology and social inclusion. Adopting these principles, the WorkGainTM Program has grown to what it is today. By simulating work tasks under the supervision of Allied Health professionals, we are promoting not only work specific rehabilitation in a controlled setting, but also encouraging risk assessment and injury prevention through manual handling and education. Working closely with the treating General Practitioners, Surgeons and Allied Health providers, we develop specific work schedules that translate clinical treatment and active, specific and targeted work rehabilitation into functional work output. This is a one-of-a-kind program in SA which is based on common sense, practical injury management and language that is common to workers and employers. The program offers objective outcomes, efficient timeframes and low cost to enable you to make better return to work decisions using the specific work data we provide.
By simulating work tasks under the supervision of Allied Health Professionals, we are able to promote work specific rehabilitation in a controlled setting. In addition to clients with physical injuries or disabilities, we are also able to design work tasks for people with psychological injuries and facilitate gradual exposure to work duties.
Working closely with the treating General Practitioners, Surgeons and Allied Health Providers, we are working with you to build specific work schedules that will translate clinical treatment into functional work output, even if the injured person is no longer with their pre-injury employer.
For injured people who are seeking a career change, but are unsure if they can sustain the physical demands of work, we are able to develop simulations to test and build their capacity for future employment.
In addition to our warehouse and designated work areas, we also have a wheelchair accessible gym facility and treatment room.
We also provide a custom solutions to Employers by designing work specific areas using their equipment, thus making the rehabilitation even more work specific.
