My experience with hands-on training was exceptionally good and very helpful. All the trainers were very helpful and motivating. They helped me boost my confidence and added on to my knowledge. The OT staff was very welcoming and helpful in all aspects, right from pre-operative to post-op. I am very glad to have performed the hands-on training.
