Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) Exercises
Condition: Neurological and Musculoskeletal Conditions: Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are the tasks that people do every day, for example, get dressed, eat food, brush hair, brush your teeth, clean the house, play with toys, go to work, go to school, etc. Typically, most people take these activities for granted because they are able to do them easily and automatically. A person with a disability may find it difficult to do some of these activities. In the realm of occupational rehabilitation, therapists create customized exercises and techniques to enable patients suffering from injuries or impairments to “relearn” how to function. By “repetition” of exercise patients improve movement essential in completing specific task or activity in daily living.
An example of ADL exercises is shown in the attached You Tube video.
LL Corpus: MINI CLINIC ™ provides ADL exercises for rehabilitation patients.
LL Corpus: MINI CLINIC ™ consists of an Occupational Therapy Table (OT Table) for therapists to engage patients in multiple exercises to stimulate eye-hand coordination, fine motor and gross motor skills, sequencing, information/ memory retrieval, abstracts, math and logic and task segmentation. Occupational therapists (OTs) are trained to identify difficulties with cognition, and the impact these difficulties have on every day skills.
The unique structure of the MINI CLINIC ™ promotes accessibility, affordability, flexibility, and safety. It is designed to enable uninterrupted rehabilitation for occupational and physical therapies as it promotes repetition of tasks or activity on daily basis without harm or injury. The period of impairment and length of rehabilitation may be shortened as a result of daily regimen or repetition.
