An Amersham-based clinic that has treated 3,000 amputees over the last decade have now stepped up their services to help their patients.

Pace Rehabilitation, which was launched in 2003, is working with Salford University and Strathclyde University, to provide expert input on research projects and testing whilst giving advice on new technology.

New technology used by the clinic enables patients who have lost part of their hand or fingers to have function restored, whilst advanced designs of microprocessor foot and ankle systems are increasingly being selected by patients to deliver a wider and more natural range of movement.

And with Covid having a huge impact on helping their patients, the centre is determined to help those who are referred to them by law firms, insurers, and case managers, who are working with individuals who have suffered major trauma in road accidents or workplace incidents.

Scott Richardson, business development manager of Pace Rehabilitation in Amersham said: “Lockdown and restrictions have certainly been a challenge but it is also hugely rewarding when we see people making progress in their rehabilitation and getting their life back after major trauma, especially during this difficult time.

“Together, alongside the law firms, case managers, and insurance companies we work with, all our patients have been able to receive the treatment they need.

“Patients visit our clinic in Amersham from all over the region and beyond so is critical that clinics like ours are continued to be given every ounce of encouragement from the Government to continue servicing our patients.

“We are proud that since the Covid-19 we’ve been able to evolve areas of its service to continue providing this life-changing treatment and support for patients.”

Jamie Gillespie, who also works at Pace Rehabilitation in Amersham, said: “We work closely with our patients at pre-amputation stage and then we support them with bespoke prostheses and rehabilitation packages.

“As well as the physical rehabilitation we also provide psychological rehabilitation for patients who are often traumatised by the incident which led them up to seeing us and need treatment to help them cope mentally.”
