 What to expect 
Your Referral

To make an appointment, telephone our customer service team on 093 33 825, e-mail info@allmedhealthcare.ie or make an appointment online 

When you contact our team, we will ask:

  • Who has referred you? This can be a self-referral or a medical professional.

  • The reason for your referral? Why do you need treatment?

  • Whether you are currently using a device?

  • We will then make an appointment with our clinicians.

your assessment

One of our clinical team will meet you in the reception area and take you through to our clinical rooms. There is ample seating in our rooms if you wish to bring someone along with you. An appointment will typically last between 15-60 minutes.

The clinician will introduce themselves with their name and outline the plan for the appointment, answering any questions you may have. This information will be documented within your own personal file. 

The assessment will usually consist of:

Visual assessment. This can be as quick as watching you walk or using more technological methods such as gait and pressure mat analysis.

Physical assessment. The clinician will assess individual joints for their range of motion and muscle strengths to name some.

prescription options

Following your assessment, the clinician will provide you with options on the types of devices or components available. When we are looking at creating a device we are looking at combining the function, comfort and appearance as well as your input. 

The costs of each will be outlined and we will show you examples of the devices where we can, and the various materials we will use. You are not obligated to purchase any of our products and we will not provide you with a device or component that is unsuitable. Our consultation costs are outlined

taking measurements

To make a device we will need measures from you to ensure a good fit. These may include: 

A video demonstration can be found 

A tape measure

Useful for taking simple measures for the provision of standard off-the-shelf devices and components. 

Useful for the provision of knee bracing, wrist splints etc.

A foam box impression

A similar material used for flower arranging. This method allows the clinician to capture an accurate model of the under surface of the feet. 

Useful for the provision of insoles.

A plaster cast

It's been around along time, however the use of plaster bandage to capture an accurate model of the body part is probably most widely used. 

Good for more complex devices.

A 3D handheld scan

Produces extremely accurate scans of the body part which can then be modeled in a specific computer program before it is milled.

Useful for AFOs and lower limb prosthetics.

A technical drawing

Used for the provision of made-to-measure footwear and knee bracing. This provides the technician with an outline of the body segment with corresponding measures.

Fitting appointment

Prior to leaving your assessment appointment you will be provided with a further appointment for the fitting of the device or component. We will keep you with the same clinician to maintain continuity. 

On attending your fitting appointment your clinician will talk you through the device or component and provide you with care and wear instructions. If required, we can make most adjustments to the device whilst you wait. 

There is no consultation charge for the fitting of a device or component. 

our care plan

We provide a free review service for the first 12 weeks following the fitting of a device or component. Minor alterations will be provided at no charge at all to ensure you get the desired result. 

On most off-the-shelf devices you will be provided with the warranty information which can be arranged through Allmed Healthcare in the event of a device not performing.

We advise our private patients on appropriate time scales to seek a future review appointment to ensure continued care.
