Presenter: Prithy Sivaraman

Physiotherapist

Prithy graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) from Curtin University, WA in 2007 and as a new grad had the opportunity to work with a range of complex adult and paediatric client’s assessing and prescribing Assistive Technology. She hasn’t looked back since, working in community based clinical centres in both WA and SA both prescribing but also providing clinical support and training.

Since joining the team at Sunrise Medical in 2020 she’s enjoyed sharing her ideas and working collaboratively to learn from others experiences to support clients to achieve their goals. Her favourite part of her role is configuring a solution to improve someone’s access or function so they can be more independent or do something they haven’t been able to previously. Outside of work you’ll usually find her in the kitchen cooking with her partner and daughter.
