According to WHO “Rehabilitation is the ensemble of measures designed to help patients getting anterior capacities back and improve their physical and mental conditions, allowing them to fit in the society as normally as possible”.
Occupational therapy is a part of the whole re-education, rehabilitation and reinsertion of patients suffering from a handicap.
Occupational therapy uses individual or group practical modalities to obtain an active treatment method.
To achieve this, it adapts and uses :

  • Homemade and / or professional techniques.

It seeks patients creativity. Occupational therapy uses activities as therapeutic means.
Its aim is more particularly to develop and/or maintain basic competences, capacities and functions of the patient.
Thus, the objective is to try and limit the worsening tendency of handicaps in order to allow patients to be more autonomous in the PROFESSIONAL domains.
During the following re-education period (muscular strengthening, reintegration of the injured part of the body, adaptation...) we provide :

  • Re-education of professional gestures
  • Training for the damaged functions

Functional evaluations for professional activities and evaluation of remaining capacities.
Then, for professional prevention depending on the movement to perform
We visit the patients workplaces to evaluate the adaptations to be made to the workstations. The possible aftereffects can lead to adaptations (suggestions to arrange the work environment...) or modifications of the workstation.
If the patient can recover the damaged functions. Then a re-education is set up to improve the damaged functions and/or a rehabilitation to develop the remaining capacities in order to find the appropriate professional movements, to acquire strength and stamina and to become autonomous in performing the tasks.
