Enable Centre creates dynamic space for comprehensive care

A group of health practitioners are excited to announce the launch of the Enable Centre – a new non-profit organisation that creates a dynamic space where the community can receive comprehensive care with practitioners who care. Based in Kenilworth, the centre is fully equipped and technologically-inclined, which enhances the multi-disciplinary treatment provided.

The idea was born in 2019, when a group of young practitioners met while working together within the same rehabilitation facility. Their backgrounds and fields of study were diverse; however, they shared a common vision which consisted of three founding pillars:

  • To tackle the most complex of rehabilitation cases using a science-driven approach – one that combines innovation and expertise from multiple fields to promote optimal physical and cognitive recovery.
  • To bridge the divide between public and private healthcare in South Africa.
  • To initiate a mind-shift in how we see and treat life changing injuries.

Traditionally, rehabilitation has focused on what an individual has lost. The Enable Centre focuses on what an individual can potentially gain – creating a  positive environment needed to promote maximal recovery.

The Enable Centre was opened on the first of October and is situated at the Aintree Park, 1 Loch Road, Kenilworth.

“Establishing the Enable Centre is a mammoth but exhilarating task! Bringing a team of over 10 healthcare practitioners together to service hundreds of clients is a daunting prospect,” the Enable Centre team says.

“The support our team has received in this venture has been overwhelming. It is comforting to know that we are doing the right thing and that many lives will be touched and improved through the work we do,” they continue.

The new treatment centre along with its team of experienced therapists offers a range of treatments including biokinetics, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and hydrotherapy. What sets the centre apart is the new technological and scientific advancements.

“Although we are careful to not jump onto any so-called ‘fads’, we are quick to adapt and integrate technologies and techniques that have a strong scientific backing,” the team explains.

Some of the technology used at the centre includes neuromuscular electrical stimulation; electromyography; biofeedback balance training; body-weight supported training; suspension therapy; vibration therapy; exer-gaming; blood flow restriction training and hydrotherapy.

Additional services will include dietetics, clinical and neuro-psychology, wheelchair seating and botox clinics.
