Amputee Program

The amputee rehabilitation program provides comprehensive rehabilitation to treat the loss of functional ability in patients who have lost a limb. Inpatient and outpatient treatment focuses on:

  • Balance, strength, and walking
  • Activities of daily living
  • Prosthetics
  • Emotional issues

Our Amputee Support Group meets monthly, and provides ongoing support and follow-up for patients, family, and friends.

Treatments

Reading Health System uses a variety of treatment approaches, tailored to your individual needs and rehabilitation goals, including:

  • ReoGo®: Utilizes robotic movement assistance and 3-D graphics to support rehabilitation therapies.
  • LiteGait® System: A gait training device that simultaneously controls weight bearing, posture, and balance over a treadmill or over ground.
  • Guldmann Body Weight Support Systems - Promote normal gait sequencing in patients who lack trunk control or lower body strength.
  • MOTOmed Movement Therapy System - Motor and software assistance gently moves and loosens patient’s arms and legs from the comfort of a wheelchair or bed.
