Forebode is a private practice, delivering advanced pre-/post-hospital care. We offer
clinical support to a range of professional and recreational sports people and teams. Our
services can be grouped into three particular areas:
- Event Medic & Sideline
Our Business Name
The name was deliberately chosen as a play on words. Our core focus is the management of health and injury risk. Particularly in the context of sport and recreation.
We’re all about applying best practice to:
1. Help athletes and other sports people to optimise their preparation in terms of strength and conditioning, nutrition and hydration (thus reducing the likelihood of injury); and,
2. Respond in the most timely and efficient manner when injuries do occur (thus reducing the potential severity of injury), and supporting the athlete back to their best condition, with those most recent learnings intact (to improve physical resilience moving forward).
The logo represents the fact that a number of individual elements can (and usually do) quite separately influence the risk of injury occurring (both acute and chronic); but that by applying the risk management process we can “connect the dots” and develop a plan to “influence the outcome” to be as close to ideal as possible.
