About Rehab Plus

Rehab Plus, a privately-owned Jamaican company, opened its doors to the public over twenty-four years ago.

In April 1987, Rehab Plus made history. It was the first Jamaican company of its kind. Opening its doors in a 600 square foot space, the company set about the challenging task of figuring out how best to serve the needs of the people of Jamaica. It was then, the only medical/home health care facility with a storefront, where people could for the first time in Jamaica, see and examine products like grab bars, bath safety chairs, and toilet safety rails, different designs of wheelchairs, an array of orthopaedic braces and many other products.

Rehab Plus This organization came into being when its founder Hope Julal, a Registered Physical Therapist who had worked in the hospital setting for a number of years, realized the difficulty in accessing health-related products and services locally.

Initially, the emphasis was mainly on rehabilitative products and services. As the demands grew, the emphasis evolved into a much wider range of products and services. Expanding consumer education, increased training, ongoing product research, market surveys, and valuable customer feedback have all served to fuel the growth of the company.

In the early years, the two most widely used services were (i) Custom-made spinal bracing for children with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis, combined with a personalized exercise programme , and (ii) pedorthic services (the use of footwear and orthopaedic devices to treat problems of the feet).

Today, along with a large product line, the company provides seven specialized medical services which are dispensed on the basis of prescriptions from doctors and referrals from physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropodists, podiatrists, and other health professionals.

From the company’s inception, the vision was to develop a strong bond with customers by providing quality service with genuine warmth and caring, and to ensure that every employee of the company, received training which would put them in good stead for any future undertaking. In other words, to train ambassadors for life!

Rehab Plus still proudly carries on the tradition of supplying innovative, state-of-the-art medical products to doctors and other health professionals, the general public, hospitals, nursing homes, and pharmacies, throughout Jamaica. This resolve is combined with the commitment to advance patient care and the quality of life for their valued customers, through the unique services offered by the company. Now more than two decades old, the company’s credentials include:

1988: The development of an integrated programme for managing Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis [AIS].

1990: The provision of a full-service Pedorthic department which targets problems of children and athletes, as well as persons suffering from diabetes, arthritis, and many other painful conditions of the feet.

1996: The American Board Certification of Jamaica’s first Pedorthist, a health professional trained in the art and science of designing and making foot orthotics (in-shoe supports), and utilizing footwear to aid in the healing and/or improvement of problems of the feet.

1998: The introduction of Jamaica’s first Computerized Gait Analysis System. This system uses digital scanning to accurately asses the pressures on different parts of the foot during walking and standing, thereby guiding the Pedorthist, in the making of foot orthotics and shoe modifications to in even distribution of pressure.
