PHYSIOLAB® INPATIENT SCHEME
By adopting Physiolab’s inpatient scheme, your hospital or practice will be able to offer a cryotherapy service to patients during their recovery on the wards. Our devices are compatible with hospital environments and will allow patients to manage swelling and pain prior to being discharged.
FACILITATE EARLY REHABILITATION WITH PHYSIOLAB
Providing your patients with excellent care post-op is fundamental to facilitate early rehabilitation. Physiolab’s inpatient model allows you to apply cryotherapy to the surgical area immediately following surgery, in the knowledge that the treatment being provided is best-in-class, natural and safe. At Physiolab, we operate excellent infection control standards and are continually innovating in order to meet the needs of our hospital clients.
REAP BOTH FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL BENEFITS
Hospitals adopting Physiolab’s inpatient model on the wards have reported improved patient satisfaction, lower opiate requirement and reduced AVLOS over a sustained period of time. Physiolab can be used throughout your patient’s entire stay on the ward. Our HQ hosts an Ozone washing facility that is deemed suitable for inclusion in NHS cleaning, hygiene and infection control protocols, where appropriate. Physiolab will handle all of the logistics involved in disinfecting product between patient use.
Our product range includes therapy packs for all key orthopaedic areas: knee, hip, shoulder and ankle.
HOW THE INPATIENT SCHEME WORKS
When you sign-up to the scheme, we will provide your hospital or clinic with loan cryotherapy S1 units and accompanying therapy packs, relative to demand.1
Each patient will use their own clean therapy pack when using the device during their stay on the wards.2
All used therapy packs are routinely returned to Physiolab for NHS-approved Ozone washing.3
In the meantime, Physiolab will ship replacement therapy packs to hospital for continued use.4
All logistics are handled by Physiolab. The hospital only pays for each therapy pack used – there is no charge for having the S1 units on the wards.5
The new Physiolab systems are working well. The new design of cuffs are good - easy to apply to the patient and patients seem to really like Physiolab. The device has its benefits of set time of specifically 8 degrees of cryotherapy, rather than using ice bags which melt at room temp. The patients can also set it themselves several times which gives them freedom in choice for cryotherapy.
