Full Description


Choosing equipment to suit an individual with a disability can be a complex task. Much research exists regarding the needs of people with disabilities on the one hand and about the equipment available for them on the other. The authors of this much-needed book uniquely bring together these two strands of research, showing how choices about equipment can be matched to an assessment of need. They explain the many issues that may be involved in choosing equipment, including availability, costs, carers' requirements, possible funding and importantly the users' physical and mental capacity, opinions and lifestyle. Using an evidence-based approach they provide step-by-step guidance for therapists, family or professional carers and users for the selection of assistive devices. Drawing throughout on their own extensive professional experience the authors present the information needed to make appropriate decisions about seating, toileting, handling and bathing devices, with illustrations and a useful list of resources.Their simple and practical guidelines will allow professionals and carers to improve quality of life for those with disabilities, and can help users of equipment themselves take a more proactive role in the choosing of assistive products.
