  • Workers Compensation Insurers
  • Income Protection Insurers
  • Directly from the injured person or their family
  • Our therapists use standardised assessments and skilled observation to determine how the injuries sustained in the accident impact on the performance of functional activities.

Thorough assessment enables our therapists to determine and appropriately justify what assistance, equipment and therapy services have been necessary from the date of injury and what is required for future care needs.

Time frame:

Rehab on the Move attempts to maintain short waiting lists in order to provide referral sources with a four-week turnaround from date of referral until completion of report

Location:

It is our preference to conduct the assessments within the client’s home so the functional performance of our client can be assessed within their normal environment.
