Occupational Therapy and Rehabilitation Engineering-a case study
Flynn, Susan; Ward, Tomas E.; Flynn, Gareth
This is a case study of the occupational therapy rehabilitation process of a teenage girl who presented in 1997 with a rare neurological condition diagnosed as rapid onset Dystonia Parkinsonism. She was helped to obtain some of the occupational performances of her choice by assistive technology devices tailored to her needs by the rehabilitation engineering department, and in this paper we wish to point out how collaboration between our departments can be of benefit to patients, and how essential microelectronic technology is in the occupational therapy environment.
