Auxiliary Devices

Severe physical disability is affecting mobility, self-care, and everyday activities. Disturbances of cognition or behaviour add to the patient´s problems.

Therefore physiotherapists and occupational therapists develop an individual treatment plan to improve the patient´s abilities or provide strategies for compensating the patient´s deficits to help him to attend kindergarten, school, and to manage activities of daily life (ADL) as efficient as possible.

Therapists decide on auxiliary devices and methods for long-term or permanent neurological handicaps, e.g walking aids, individually adapted wheelchairs, communication systems, specially provided computers or notebooks for the special needs of the patient.

An intensive training will help to adapt the auxiliary devices so that the patient will regain as much independence as possible.
