Amparo Indications

Why Amparo

The Amparo system works really well in any mobile scenario as well as at satellite clinics that may not have full labs or technicians. Not only can you see patients in their homes when necessary but you can reduce back and forth between hospitals and rehab centers by eliminating the need for multiple appointments.

Patients who have scheduling or transport conflicts which can either limit the number of times they are able to come to clinic, or cause them to no show all together are ideal patients for the system as you can get them fit and off to therapy in one visit.

Ideal for:

  • Home Visits
  • Mobile Clinics
  • Hospitals
  • Nursing Homes
  • Rehab Centers
