Occupational therapy is a critical component of upper limb prosthetic rehabilitation. Unlike other prosthetic facilities, Advanced Arm Dynamics' occupational therapists are on-site and work with you continuously throughout your fitting and rehabilitation.
Our occupational therapists work exclusively with people who have experienced upper limb loss. That’s a stark contrast to the average occupational therapist who rarely sees an arm amputee and is unfamiliar with upper limb prosthetics.
The earliest phase of occupational therapy may begin while your surgical wound is still healing, then progress through the pre-prosthetic, interim prosthetic and post-prosthetic phases. Our occupational therapists will help prepare your residual limb to wear a prosthesis and then train you on renegotiating specific tasks, motor skills, positioning and posture.
Occupational therapy accelerates your rehabilitation and is essential to your success.
