Gemma’s Story: Spreading Her Wings Again

We recently received an amazing testimonial from the Dullstroom Bird of Prey and Rehabilitation Centre. This centre provides care for injured and orphaned birds of prey in South Africa, and also hosts educational events to raise public awareness about endangered birds of prey. 3 (You can find out more about the Centre’s work on their website.) Recently, they used coMra to help Gemma, an injured falcon, soar to new heights on her journey to healing.

Here is Gemma’s story, as told by Frith Douglas, Manager at the Dullstroom Bird of Prey and Rehabilitation Centre:

“Gemma is a Lanner falcon that came into the Centre on 10 July 2020. We got a call from Toyota in Burgersfort that someone who was bringing a car in for service had hit a bird and not knowing what to do had just placed it in the back of the bakkie and left the car for service. We were contacted and went out to get the bird.

We took her through to our vets in White River and x-rays revealed a midshaft fracture of the radius and ulna of the right wing. Our vets operated and pinned the radius and did an external fixator of the ulna. Her wing then had to remain strapped for six weeks for the fracture to heal. Once the vets were happy the fracture was sufficiently healed, we needed to start the long road of rehabilitation which meant fitting her with equipment and starting fitness training. She showed very slow progress and the wing was definitely very sore. Lanner falcons need to be very fit and need to hunt their prey at high speeds.

We decided to try coMra therapy to see if we could aid with the recovery process. We did a three-week programme every second day comprising of 2min @ 5Hz, 3min @ 50Hz and then 2min @ VHz. The results have been very pleasing.

From July, before treatment was started, she only was able to reach a maximum altitude of 20m and maximum speed of 55km/h with a total flying distance of 3.6km.

Gemma's flight dataFrom the attached GPS recordings, you can see how she has improved with treatments and is now attaining heights of over 1060m with speeds up to 155km/h and distances of over 7km.”

These figures tell a compelling story, showing just how effective this non-invasive treatment can be, helping creatures great and small through the challenges of the healing process.
