3 A Lifetime of Care The loss of a limb can be a traumatic experience, affecting an individual both emotionally and physically. MossRehab s team of experienced specialists and renowned treatment programs can ease the transition to a new way of living, and provide support at every step. Whether you arrive at MossRehab for inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation, with an upper or lower extremity or multi-limb amputation, our treatment team works together with patients, their families and referring physicians to maximize recovery. Each team member has specialized training and knowledge in amputation rehabilitation and prosthetics. We utilize a multistep approach that includes preparation for using a prosthesis, training with the prosthesis and access to lifetime follow-up. Pre-prosthetic Phase (inpatient or outpatient) The best results occur when we start therapy before the prosthetic limb is fitted. That can include the period leading up to amputation. Therapy focuses on preventing complications post-surgery and strengthening and preparing the patient for a prosthesis while the limb is healing. Prosthetic Training (inpatient, outpatient, or day hospital) Once a patient is fitted for a prosthesis, treatment focuses on training for its use, regaining optimal mobility, increasing endurance and maximizing comfort and function. We have extensive understanding and resources to address pain and the relearning of daily living skills. Our treatment team believes a combination of individual and group therapy sessions is most successful in the rehabilitation of our patients. Individual therapy allows patients to work one-on-one with our therapists to focus on specific personalized needs and goals, such as walking or arm function. Group therapy allows patients with similar issues to work with our clinical staff and each other, which is instrumental in providing support and inspiration throughout the rehabilitation process. Community and Vocational Re-entry At MossRehab, we know that there s more to rehabilitation than the ability to simply function. We have an extensive community and vocational re-entry program that individualizes therapy, focusing on important skills to help patients get back to work or play. Ongoing Support Our commitment to our patients extends throughout the remainder of their lives. Patients maintain an ongoing relationship with their rehabilitation physician to assist with obtaining future prosthetics as well as addressing and preventing future complications related to prosthetic use. Pain management and psychological and counseling services are also available on an ongoing basis.
4 Specialized Services MossRehab offers an extensive number of specialized services designed to help persons with amputation overcome a specific clinical challenge, re-learn a specific skill or build upon their current abilities. At whatever point a patient is in the rehabilitation process, we have the team, tools and technology to help. Below are just a few of the services available. The Sheerr Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory helps physicians identify the causes of walking problems in patients using prostheses. Computerized diagnostic equipment helps provide recommendations for appropriate prostheses, as well as optimal fit and alignment. MossRehab is the only rehabilitation provider in the Philadelphia region to have this specialized laboratory. Prosthetic and Orthotic Services We have a close relationship with certified prosthetists and orthotists who work within the hospital and are available daily for needed adjustments. We recognize that choosing a prosthetic vendor is an important and personal decision. Our treatment team works with all prosthetic providers, and will work to communicate and interact with your prosthetist to ensure a cohesive treatment approach.

The Amputation Abilities Group is a monthly support group for, and run by, people with amputation and their families.
