Counselling regarding assistive devices
Many of the limitations you may find in your daily life can be overcome with the use of assistive devices. Inadequate choice and usage of these devices may be harmful and cause accidents. The occupational therapist is suitably qualified to evaluate each situation and recommend the appropriate device.
Besides assisting in the choice, the occupational therapist should also contribute to personalize and train the correct use of the assistive device, namely in the environment where the disabled person moves, in order to verify its efficiency, as well as assist in case of need of replacement on a later date.
Through assistive devices banks it is possible to borough basic materials, namely for hygiene, bed sore prevention, mobility, etc. It is also possible to obtain financial support through prescribing identities – health centers, hospitals and specialized centers. If you think you need or have been prescribed an assistive device, do not hesitate to contact us.
