A specialist prosthetics and orthotics company has announced the opening of its first ever, satellite outpatient clinic based in the north of England.

Sheffield-based STEPS Prosthetics has launched the clinic at Neural Pathways in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear – where it already works in partnership with STEPS Rehabilitation.

The move has meant that the company is now the only UK private prosthetics company to design, manufacture, fit and support amputee clients all within a dedicated residential rehabilitation setting.

With clients attending the facility from across the UK, they saw an opportunity to expand their outpatient clinic services further North to enable them to better support clients closer to their home.

Neural Pathways is a multi-disciplinary neurological rehabilitation company providing services across the North East, Scotland and Midlands.

They provide rehabilitation for people of all ages with complex needs, including amputation, and their experienced team includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists and therapy assistants.

STEPS Prosthetics will be providing outpatient prosthetic and orthotic services from the Gateshead clinic, working alongside the Neural Pathways clinical team, to offer an interdisciplinary service and to relieve the pressure that travelling longer distances can have on clients.

Enhanced level of service

STEPS Prosthetics Founding Director, Colette Shaw told Health Tech World: “By having this additional clinic in the North East, we are able to give an enhanced level of service to clients, many of whom live in the North East area.

“We are delighted to be working with Neural Pathways and their therapy team to offer a comprehensive service to our clients closer to home.”
