We are  a local team of experienced, mobile physiotherapists providing home based orthopaedic rehabilitation, falls risk assessment  and falls prevention training in the  Greater Hobart area.


You have enough to focus on when you leave hospital without being concerned about travel arrangements and waiting rooms.



Our Services

Post Operative Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

We provide a rehabilitation service forming a link between your hospital rehabilitation team and your regular physiotherapy clinic. We call this HOME LINK. We carry out your specialist’s post operative protocol in your home and liaise closely with practitioners involved at all points in your rehabilitation process to ensure a smooth transition between hospital, home and physiotherapy clinic.

HOME LINK rehabilitation can be provided on a flexible week by week basis or as a  package of six visits over four weeks.

Falls Risk Assessments

Falls and poor bone health are a major cause of disability in the older population resulting in significant  costs and impact on the lifestyle of both the faller and their families.

Research shows that physiotherapy interventions can reduce the chance of falls.

Leading causes of falls include alterations to balance, mobility and strength and the presence of home hazards.

Our comprehensive falls risk assessment includes:

  • A 40 point home  falls risk assessment
  • An assessment of your physical risk of falling using evidence based outcome measures
  • A clearly written report outlining strategies to improve the safety of your home
  • Recommendations for an individualised program to reduce your falls risk profile

Falls Prevention and Mobility Training ( four visits over six weeks)

Based on your assessment our team will prescribe and train you in a challenging, tailored exercise program addressing:

  •  Complex mobility
  •  Balance
  • Strength
  • Strategies to cope with the consequences of a fall. This will improve your confidence and reduce the effect of fear on your balance and reactions
  • Reassessment at the end of your program to monitor your progress

Follow Up and Monitoring (three visits over 12 months)

Effective falls prevention requires a change in behaviour. Research shows that people tend to regress into old habits by six months following a  falls prevention program.

We offer a monitoring package which includes a reassessment of your balance and mobility every four months. We may then revise your exercise program to suit your changing needs.

We provide two options for follow up:

  • Home visit
  • Online via Skype
