A former head of the Kotoko medical team, Dr. Kwaku Boateng, has donated a therapeutic ultrasound machine to the club.
The donation on Tuesday was done at the Kotoko secretariat on his behalf by management member and current head of the medical team, Dr. Jerry Pratt Newton.
The device was received by Chief Executive Officer, George Amoako, in the presence of Administrative Manageress, Rose Padmore Yeboah, and her deputy, Lucy Josephine Andoh, both of whom are also management members.
Dr. Newton explained to asantekotokosc.com the device was for the management of soft tissue injuries such as sprains, groins, strains, oedema and amongst others.
“It would make the management of such injuries more efficient and timely than it used to be before. The time frame for recoveries from such injuries would definitely reduce with the use of the device.”
Dr. Boateng, who now lives and practices in the United States of America (USA), was medical chief in the erstwhile Dr. Kofi Kodua Sarpong’s era with Dr. Newton as his deputy.
Dr. Newton said the gesture followed discussions with his former boss over the necessity of the device after assuming office as head of the team.
“We had discussions with Dr. Boateng about the need for us to have the machine, and he opted to buy one for us from the USA.”
George Amoako was grateful to Dr. Boateng for the gift and told the club’s official website the machine would be used for its intended purpose.
“It is a multi-purpose machine which we need so much for the treatment of several injuries. It would be put to good use. We would always remember where it came from whenever we see, pick or use it.”
