Rehab for amputees in Kraków

Corporate social responsibility
POLAND The first rehabilitation centre in Poland offering comprehensive physical therapy and psychological support to amputees is to open in Kraków in the spring.
A contract has been signed by the Poland Business Run foundation and the developer of the project Grupa Buma in which the latter will give the free use of two premises on ul. Odrzańska for the clinic. The patients, particularly those who have had amputations, will be able to use a range of specialist services, such as orthopaedic, diabetic, psychological and psychotraumatological treatment. Extensive rehabilitation treatment will also be available, including sensory and psychological therapy.

“Our aim is to create a single place with a qualified and experienced team of experts for treating patients as well as training other doctors and physiotherapists for working with people after amputations. The centre will be equipped with the necessary rehabilitation equipment, USG equipment and computers with specialist software,” explained Agnieszka Pleti, the president of the Poland Business Run foundation.

“We are glad that we have been able to support amputees for the second year in a row. This time not only as a sponsor of the run but also by supporting the Poland Business Run foundation in the opening of the rehabilitation centre,” added Konrad Dziewoński, the president of the Buma group.

The Poland Business Run foundation organises the country’s largest charity relay race and donates the funds raised to amputees.
