WINNSBORO — Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation has received a grant from Aflac to fund the purchase of Anodyne Infrared Therapy equipment for Fairfield Memorial Hospital.
The equipment is used to help patients gain more control over pain, improve healing, and increase circulation in their extremities. Anodyne Therapy Systems emit infrared light to deliver temporary therapeutic benefits.
“Anodyne therapy is a beneficial treatment to improve neuropathy, decrease pain and to improve a patient’s overall quality of life along with a comprehensive physical therapy program,” said Sarah Stredney, director of rehabilitation at FMH.
“To date the foundation has provided more than $100,000 to the hospital through grants, contributions and in-kind donations,” said Dawn Catalano, executive director of the Foundation. “Our contributions to the hospital help provide needed equipment such as this specialized therapy to allow patients to stay close to home for their medical care.”
