These videos and brochures demonstrate the safe set up and use of different types of equipment that may be recommended by your occupational therapist.

Ensure you practise set up and use of equipment and aids, preferably with a family member present. This will ensure safe and effective equipment use before actual use.

Who are the resources for?

These videos are for people who have had specific equipment recommended to them by their occupational therapist for use at home. The recommendations are based on the individual’s injuries and functional capacity following a hospital admission.

When are you supposed to use them?

Your therapist will indicate which videos or brochures are relevant to you and when to use them.

If you need help

Contact your occupational therapist if you have any questions or concerns regarding the set up of equipment as shown in these resources.
