A Message from our outgoing GM, Jessica Scanlan

Welcome to the third issue of Rehab Matters — the combined newsletter of Royal Rehab Private and MetroRehab Hospitals designed to keep specialists and GPs up to date on the latest in rehabilitation medicine.

In this issue, we’re delighted to share news that Royal Rehab has acquired advanced robotic exoskeleton, EksoNR – an Australia-first. Designed to fast-track rehabilitation for people with neurological conditions, EksoNR is already delivering strong clinical outcomes around standing and walking, as well as psychological benefits. As Royal Rehab continues to grow, we are reorganising some positions.

As I write, I am in the process of transferring to the position of general manager of Disability Services at Royal Rehab. I am pleased to welcome Selina Rowe into the role of general manager Royal Rehab – Ryde, which incorporates general management responsibility of Royal Rehab Private Hospital.

Selina has over a decade of experience leading multidisciplinary community and inpatient-based services. Wishing you and your patients all the very best.
