Visit to world class SOCSO Tun Razak Rehabilitation Centre in Melaka
One sunny Friday morning on 6 January 2023, iElder representative Olivia Quah and our business partner Ms Lim from Upstairs paid a visit to Socso Rehabilitation Centre in Melaka Malaysia.
When I reached this world class rehabilitation centre, I was impressed with its architectural design and found that the facilities have ensured easy access and safety for its patients. Moreover, I felt peaceful and calm when looking at the plants and I believe this will help speed up the recovery of patients.
I would like to ask a question to iElder customers: Do you know SOCIAL Security Organisation (SOCSO) members are eligible for world class rehabilitation treatment in Malaysia? Perhaps many are still unaware of this facility. In fact, treatment is available for free at the Tun Abdul Razak Rehabilitation Centre (TRRC) in Bandar Hijau, Melaka. The centre, which is equipped with the latest high-tech equipment and supported by professional staff, provides a full rehabilitation treatment program under one roof.
The facility includes physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, occupational therapy, return to work and vocational training, and a Neuro-Robotics Rehabilitation and Cybernics Centre.
This is a common area where patients get their daily exercise.
The first step prior to starting rehabilitation is to get an assessment from Sensory Centre in the first two weeks. Examples include videostagmography (VNG), audiology, hearing test, visual testing and optometry.
Hydrotherapy training session at the aquatic centre, which can help improve muscle strength and help with pain management.
Social Security Organization (SOCSO), in collaboration with Cyberdyne Inc. Japan, have successfully established the first Neuro-Robotics Rehabilitation & Cybernics Centre in Malaysia at SOCSO Tun Razak Rehabilitation Centre, Melaka. This centre is equipped with HAL® (Hybrid Assistive Limb) Robot Suit, the latest neurorobotic technology equipment from Cyberdyne Inc. Japan.
Apart from that, TRRC also provides vocational rehabilitation programs to ensure participants have the skills required to be independent after completing their training.
Many other programs are also available in sewing, baking and culinary arts, electrical and electronics, graphic design, handicraft, hairdressing, tailoring, office management and computer skills.
After the participants have finished their treatment and training, SOCSO also helps them to look for jobs through its Return To Work (RTW) programme.
