Spire Washington Hospital welcome a visit from Sky Tyne & Wear

May 2012

Spire Washington recently welcomed Sky Tyne & Wear to the hospital to demonstrate the benefits of the Game Ready machine that our physiotherapy department uses in the treatment of acute and chronic injury and to assist in the recovery and rehabilitation from sports injuries and orthopaedic surgery.

They were joined by Michael Tait from Newcastle Falcons and long jumper Chris Kirk to demonstrate and explain the advantages of 'Game Ready' over traditional methods of treating longstanding and post operative orthapaedic and sports injuries.

Spire Washington Hospital has recently introduced the Game Ready machine in which cold water is circulated through the applied body-part-specific Wrap before passing back through the ice reservoir in a continuous loop, thus allowing a more effective application of cold therapy.
