So grateful to empower a wonderful community of Opthamologists at the Gen Eye Surgical training today in Melbourne, with skills and knowledge on ergonomics when performing surgery and clinical techniques.
I even learnt how to remove a cataract over virtual reality 😉 some amazing presenters and we are looking forward to collaborating with an organisation about AI and biomechanics!

What a busy few weeks! We have been a little quiet on the socials as we have been very busy prepping our team for some exciting projects in 2023 which we will share in due course 😉

We have also had a highly experienced OT from a rehab background join our team and 2 of our existing OT team step up into near full time roles.

You’ll also get to know our second Therapy Coordinator Margie, who will join Amy this month.

Busy start to 2023 😄 but a welcome one ❤️

This opportunity doesn’t come along often 😅

Whether it be therapy/ rehabilitation at home, hydrotherapy (various locations), manual handling assessment or complex equipment scripting- our team will LISTEN, provide you OPTIONS to achieve your expectation and help you become more independent. Bored of the usual venues? Why not join us at Latitide? Treeclimb? Seachange at Semaphore?

Or maybe it’s education and training you need? Our physiotherapists take a Manutention approach to “manual handling training” (aka Hazardous Manual Tasks Training” and provide both an “end user” and “train the trainer” style of courses in our suite that are customised to the scope of your team.

Feel free to reach out today! 1300 661 670

Interesting article 😅 we would hope we don’t all look like Mindy in the year 3000, however some of these traits such as thoracic kyphosis, forward head posture, rounded shoulders, tennis elbow and thumb abnormalities are already highly prevalent in our community.
Not only with office workers, but you’d be surprised that almost every “palm down” action you perform often results in many of these postures.

You’re welcome to head over to our website to pick up a free self checklist to assist you to learn some tips about maintaining a more neutral body during manual tasks.Hunchbacked, wide-necked with a 'text-claw thumb' 😩

It's official, Safe Work Practice is rebranding 2/3 of it's business to identify as 'EquipT To Thrive'.

www.equipttothrive.com.au

After much consultation with those we support, stakeholders and our team, we thought it was a necessary time in our journey to rebrand our clinical services to better reflect the vision, values and services we provide.
Launching in March 2022, you will start to see our branding emerge over the next fortnight.
We can still be contacted through the same avenues, we are still the same team, ... we even still offer the same exceptional quality service (with a new addition of Community Nursing Services to come) - we just have a new look.
Thank you for your continued support.

With the current Covid outbreak, we too have been risk managing within our team.

All frontline and support staff at SWP are double or triple vaccinated against COVID19 and influenza, wear a fit tested N95 mask and eye protection to all face to face visits, have their own unique QR code per therapist, have a rigorous entry and exit infection control procedure for all items entering the home and screening is conducted prior to any visit.

If you however feel that you would prefer Telehealth support for your assessment or therapy, we can facilitate this in most cases over Zoom and can organise this with your support staff if you have trouble with using technology.

Stay safe everyone ❤️
