Once a month the clinicians of The Bone Healing and Deformity Correction service hold a Frame Camp for the patients who have a Taylor Spatial Frame placed for their treatment. The clinicians have recognized that having a Taylor Spatial Frame comes with unique questions that are often best answered by others who have the same questions.
Frame camp allows patients to discuss daily living issues that they encounter when wearing the frame. Questions about clothing, sleeping, bathing, and pin care to name a few are commonly discussed and it is typically one of the "veteran" frame wearers who has the best advise regarding daily living issues.
Treatment utilizing the Taylor Spatial Frame is a long duration, and requires a long-term patient commitment. The Frame Camp provides support for the patients as they are moving through the steps of treatment and provides an opportunity to receive encouragement and to encourage other frame patients going through bone healing or deformity correction.
