Uses Low Frequency Ultrasound Assisted Wound Therapy (LFUAWT) to provide a method of wound debridement and wound therapy.  The therapy removes dead tissue and kills and removes bacteria which in turn may improve blood flow to the area and aid the healing process.

Indications for the therapy include non-healing chronic wounds greater than 6 weeks, sloughy wound beds, unhealthy tissue of recurrent wound infection.  Patients can be referred to the service by their GP, Surgeon, Community Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or self-referral.  For further information and to make an appointment or discuss your suitability for the therapy please call the surgery or 4352 8651 and leave a message and we will get back to you ASAP.

For patients whose incontinence is caused by a weakening of their pelvic floor muscles, The Wave Chair can offer unique therapeutic
benefits.
