Every day I see people like Raymond Clemens, living with extreme pain from complex hip or knee joint osteoarthritis. As primary carer for his elderly mother, Raymond wanted to improve his mobility, so he could look after her and comfortably perform all the daily household chores.
The Osteoarthritis Chronic Care Program at Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital offers real hope to hundreds of sufferers allowing them to lead full and productive lives.
There is a range of excellent specialised exercise equipment now available on the market, which can greatly enhance treatment outcomes for patients like Raymond.
HOW YOUR GIFT WILL HELP:
The ergonomic and adjustable design of the Expresso HD Recumbent Bike provides good back support for the many patients suffering lower back pain, and with its interactive display panel, it offers greater benefit to patients with cognitive impairment.
The Pilates Rebounder system will allow us to structure our low-impact exercise regime to the patient, based on their specific level of function and strength, and to adjust the equipment and exercise level as these improve.
Your gift of $55 or more today will help to raise the $19,000 needed to purchase this equipment, so we can offer our patients the very best care possible and meet the growing demand for the program.
With your support this tax appeal, patients like Raymond have willingly taken life-changing steps
