WorkCover & Motor Vehicle Accident Rehabilitation

We use the latest scientifically based rehabiitaion and self-management tecqniques to ensure the efficient return of an injured worker to their duties. Our outcomes are based on high client return to work rates whilst ensuring long-term prevention of injury, disease and dependence.

Individuals injured in the workplace or in a motor vehicle accident need rehabilitation to facilitate a speedy yet safe return to the workforce. Work Related Activity Programs (WRAP) or Exercise Based Conditioning Programs use exercise-based rehabilitation to improve the functional abilities of a worker to return to pre-injury duties or achieve an upgrade in their existing duties.

To ensure that all criteria of WRAP’s or Exercise Based Conditioning Programs are met, PulseFit  conducts the following assessments on all clients:

INITIAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT
A PulseFit Exercise Physiologist conducts initial assessments. The client is lead through standardised functional tests to ascertain their capabilities of undertaking a Work Related Activity Program or Exercise Based Conditioning Program. It is understood that not all clients are suited to this form of program and this assessment aims to determine their suitability. At the completion of the assessment a full report on the findings and recommendations are issued to all appropriate parties.

What are the benefits of an Exercise Physiologist Assessment?

  • To determine the weaknesses and strengths of the client, and to establish their physical tolerances.
  • To gain an understanding of the functional capabilities of the client and how they relate to their work environment.
  • To provide a greater understanding of the requirements of the client’s occupation, which correlates into a more effective program.
  • To assess whether the client shows any indicators prior to the commencement of the program to aid in the implementation of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles.

Work Related Activity Programs (WRAP)

WRAP’s are conducted in our studio’s and HealthHub partner locations throughout Australia. The program follows the PulseFit WRAP principles and includes the following:

  • A graded exercise program consisting of individually supervised Exercise Physiology sessions with a university qualified Exercise Physiologist.
  • If necessary, a 3-month gym membership at a nominated facility and the establishment of home based exercise programs.
  • A final program report detailing the outcomes of the program, and comments on the client’s attendance and motivation levels.
  • A focus on manual handling skills, core stability training, and strength and flexibility development. The client is educated as to why they are doing the exercises so they can improve their knowledge and decrease the risk of re-injury, therefore decreasing time off work and costs to the employer.
  • The clients are encouraged to commence independent exercise as soon as possible in relation to their capabilities and level of improvement and understanding.
