Discovering ways to maintain or regain independence despite physical challenges is a crucial aspect of any therapeutic journey. Adaptive equipment evaluations conducted by our certified hand specialist are instrumental in this process. This evaluation aims to identify the adaptive tools and equipment that can assist individuals in performing daily activities efficiently and independently.
What are Adaptive Equipment Evaluations in Manhattan and Long Island?
Adaptive Equipment Evaluations are comprehensive assessments carried out to determine the need for adaptive equipment in individuals who have experienced hand injuries or have conditions that affect their hand functions. These evaluations focus on recommending equipment that can mitigate the impact of functional deficits, enabling individuals to perform daily tasks such as eating, dressing, and personal hygiene with ease and independence.
How Do Adaptive Equipment Evaluations Work?
The process of adaptive equipment evaluation commences with a thorough assessment of an individual’s hand function, strength, and range of motion. Our certified hand therapist will also review the patient’s medical history, occupational demands, and the specific challenges they encounter while performing daily activities. The assessment may also include an evaluation of the individual’s home and work environments to understand better the contexts in which the adaptive equipment will be used.
Based on the findings, the therapist recommends a range of adaptive equipment such as specialized utensils, dressing aids, or custom splints. Following the recommendations, the individuals are trained on how to use the equipment to ensure they can utilize the tools safely and effectively. In some cases, a follow-up evaluation may be conducted to ascertain if the adaptive equipment continues to meet the individual’s needs or if adjustments are necessary.
