Assistive Technology

Assistive technology plays a crucial role in occupational therapy by enhancing the independence, safety, and overall quality of life for adults with various physical and cognitive challenges.

Occupational therapists assess each individual's unique needs and tailor assistive technology recommendations accordingly. They also provide training and education to help individuals and their caregivers effectively use and integrate these technologies into daily life.

Here are some examples of adult assistive technologies commonly used in occupational therapy, particularly related to mobility and home modifications:

  • Recliners and Lift Chairs

    Recliners and lift chairs are designed to help individuals with mobility limitations get in and out of a seated position more easily. These chairs provide additional support and assist in preventing falls.

  • Mobility Aids

    Various mobility aids, such as canes, walkers, and wheelchairs, provide support and assistance for individuals with difficulty walking. These aids are selected based on the individual's needs and level of mobility.

  • Kitchen Aids

    Adaptive kitchen tools, utensils, and appliances can help individuals with limited dexterity or strength engage in cooking and meal preparation. Examples include jar openers, adaptive cutting boards, and ergonomic utensils.
