GMAA have recorded years of excellent service, enabling us to treat patients who are provided for by the Road Accident Fund, WCA and Medical Aid. We are also able to assist private prosthetic patients from all over Africa.
We are fortunate to offer consultations at one of our many practices in Johannesburg. We have facilities based in Rivonia/Sandton and Netcare Garden City Hospital.
Consultations can be made via bookings:
After an amputation was performed, the removable rigid dressing should be applied. It is designed to immobilize, protect, and control oedema in the trans-tibial residual limb.
Unlike plaster of Paris, the removable rigid dressing can be hardened and softened repeatedly, to permit easy observation of the post operative wound and allow stump volume fluctuations. The rigid dressing is normally replaced by a compression garment when stitches are removed.
Continuous pressure is applied to the residual limb (Coning) in preparation for prosthetic fitting. Coning is done over a period of three to six weeks.
At GM&A, our priority is quality, function and catering to the individual. This ethos is carried through in the production of modular leg prostheses. The prosthetist’s choice of correct prosthetic components is a decisive factor for the success of the patient fitting.
Initial consultations with our prosthetist, physiotherapist and biokineticist are focused on each individual’s presentation. Consultations allow our team to formulate and advise on prosthesis prescription, functional goals, and general muscle strengthening programs for improved comfort and mobility.
With the large array of prosthetic components on the market today, we are guided by an internationally recognised mobility grading system developed by Otto bock in 1994. With the aid of the Mobis system, we can immediately recognize the mobility grade and the weight load for which functional parts like prosthetic feet, knee and hip joints are recommended.
For structural parts like adapters and tube adapters, classification according to the patient’s weight and impact level is valid as usual.
At Grant Monaghan & Associates, we work closely with a wide range of rehabilitation professionals – some located in the same location. Our therapists work as a close-knit organized team, that is focused on a patient’s individual needs.
Kindly complete the online form on the Contact Us page of our website and one of our staff members will contact you for an appointment date and time. Alternatively, please contact one of our rooms at the numbers provided to make an appointment telephonically.
You, or your referring doctor and/ or medical aid will be forwarded a report or letter detailing our recommendations based on the assessment findings and your discussions. This will include specifications of appropriate equipment and an estimate of the costs (proforma invoice) as well as short-term rehabilitation needs. We are unable to provide fixed quotations for quantities of therapy due to the uncertainty of personal needs. Your therapist will however tell you the costs per session of these services.
As a client you will be asked to participate fully in your rehabilitation plan. This may include some form of “homework”, for example, an exercise routine, monitoring the equipment behaviour during different activities and provide feedback so we can adjust equipment or amend your rehabilitation plan. Your full participation will assist in gaining better results making your rehabilitation plan more successful. You must inform the staff if at any time you are not happy with how your rehabilitation is progressing.
At GM&A, we have strong opinions on what makes for successful treatment programmes, apart from our professional competence. The best outcome can only be achieved when there is full commitment from both the therapy team and the patient.
