What we stand for
We are rehabilitation engineers. That means we help people get their lives back on track after a catastrophic injury or illness. Our clients may be recovering from a Stroke - or living with MS or one of the many neurological conditions that squeeze the zest from life. We work with spinal cord injured persons to help them keep fit for the long term and find levels of recovery they were told not to expect.
We work in rehabilitation which to us means we often can't make solid guarantees of individual recovery because a lot depends on factors we can't control - but we can provide sound guidance and restore hope and health to many. Everything is possible but nothing is certain.
Why technology is not enough - and why therapy alone is not enough
Restoring an individual’s quality of life following a catastrophic injury or illness is more often limited by the resources, attitudes, beliefs, structures and processes of our health and social services than it is by any fundamental lack of knowledge.
When you or a family member have experienced a life-changing event survival is sometimes the first priority and our health services do a fantastic job at that. In the longer term it is rehabilitation and sound guidance that matters and this is where many find that the support they get is lacking. Although we work with some great technology this is not normally going be enough to provide a complete solution for an individual. Therapy alone is not sufficient either.
Anatomical Concepts (UK) Ltd has learned that at the very least we need to bring great technology together with great therapy. But we think we can add more than that..
The Third Ingredient
D.H. Lawrence wrote a peom called "The Third Thing"
Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one,
but there is also a third thing, that makes it water
and nobody knows what that is
The atom locks up two energies
but it is the third thing present which makes it an atom
What makes Anatomical Concepts (UK) different is we have the knowledge, depth and breadth of experience to bring a "third ingredient" into the mix. The founding Directors are passionate about what they do and have 30 or more years each in clinical practice, research, engineering and business. We apply this as best we can for our client's benefit. We link with partners who can share our ethos, learn from us and also teach us what they know so that the result is an outstanding solution for our clients.
