What patients do you see?

At the Pulvertaft Hand Centre, we see a wide range of patients from trauma to non-traumatic injuries.

  • Flexor injury
  • Fractured fingers
  • Tennis elbow

What are the clinical challenges?

  • Time (30 minute time slots)
  • Limited resources
  • Limited space

How do you use the data?

We use the BTE a lot for denervation assessments so this means we use this piece of equipment to be able to prove if someone is suitable for surgery. The surgeons like to see the difference between work output, endurance, and strength pre and post-injection. The data and reports produced from the BTE can help when deciding if denervation would be successful.

We’ve changed the way we rehab a lot of our wrist patients and we’ve noticed that although people are weak in the wrist, that’s had a link between upper quadrant stability reduces strength generally across the whole body. Therefore moving away from rehab at a table and doing flexion/extension at a static base, to now doing whole body dynamic rehab. From a wrist point of view that’s improved our outcomes by improving recovery time.

Why the BTE PrimusRS?

We use the BTE Primus for a lot of work-based simulation tasks such as digging and lifting. For example, we are producing reports for motor cross, because we can simulate the pump you get when you’re on a motor cross. The BTE software keeps patients motivated due to them being able to see some standardised data and goals on the screen. We also think it’s a great space saver! We use it as a multi-gym and set both the machines up for a circuit training class.
