The GUTMANN BARCELONA Advanced Prosthetics and Neurorehabilitation Clinic, is a service of the Guttmann Barcelona neuroclinic, Institute of Cerebral Health and Neurorehabilitation, which offers a prosthetic programme and comprehensive support to the person throughout the prosthetic process, from the moment the decision is made to the final adaptation to a prosthesis, including preparation, the provisional prosthesis, pre/post rehabilitation, fitting of the definitive prosthesis and follow-up of possible complications.
It also offers something equally important, which is psychological support for the person and the people around them throughout their adaptation to the prosthesis. We provide all the necessary tools to achieve optimal adaptation to everything that living with a prosthesis entails.
Why have we created the advanced prosthetics
and neurorehabilitation clinic?
Amputations affect both the physical condition of the person and their psychological state, that is, they affect their general health, lifestyle and independence. This is a process of physical and mental adaptation in which various factors relating to both the person and the people around them are involved. The most common causes of amputation are vascular, followed by trauma and tumours.
There is a growing awareness of the social integration of the amputee or person with a prosthesis, especially in younger people who need to recover their lifestyle in the best possible way by practising sports, outdoor activities, professional development, etc.
Only 30% of amputee patients know how to use their prosthesis correctly, for this reason it is necessary not just to have a good therapeutic indication and fitting of the most appropriate device for each person, but also the entire process of monitoring and pre/post rehabilitation. This will help the person to get the most out of the prosthesis with the consequent improvement of personal, social, and work relationships, in short, of their quality of life.
We are aware that there is a wide range of prostheses in a complex and sophisticated market, and in which it is difficult to decide upon the most appropriate option for each person. For this reason, we offer a pioneering, innovative and unique service that includes a comprehensive approach and treatment for the person who needs prosthetics to live their daily life.
