In the ever-evolving world of adaptive housing, accessibility and safety are paramount. We understand the unique challenges Occupational Therapists (OTs) face when assisting individuals who struggle with staircases and are seeking ways to improve their quality of life. That’s why we are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest resource: “Home Lifts – A Guide for Occupational Therapists.”
This invaluable guide is hot off the print press and made its debut at the Association of Occupational Therapists National Conference in Cavan. At MMS Medical, we take pride in our commitment to empowering OTs with the knowledge and tools they need to make a significant impact on their clients’ lives.
The Challenge of Staircases
For many individuals, something as seemingly simple as climbing a flight of stairs can be a daunting and even dangerous task. For others, it may be entirely impossible due to mobility issues, disabilities, or other medical conditions. In these cases, the importance of finding a solution that allows safe access to all areas of the home cannot be overstated.
Introducing “Home Lifts – A Guide for Occupational Therapists”
Our new guide aims to be the ultimate reference for OTs who work with clients seeking accessible housing solutions. It offers a comprehensive overview of various home lift options and their installation procedures. We believe that with the right information at their fingertips, OTs can better assist their clients in making informed decisions about their home accessibility needs.
1. Types of Home Lifts
Our guide delves into the different types of home lifts available today, providing OTs with a clear understanding of the options at their disposal. From Through Floor Lifts to vertical platform lifts, we break down each type and discuss its suitability for various scenarios.
2. Installation and Customization
We recognise that every home and client is unique. That’s why our guide outlines the options available for home lifts. We explore considerations such as space requirements, safety features, and aesthetics to help OTs tailor their recommendations to individual client needs.
3. Case Studies and Real-Life Scenarios
To illustrate the practical benefits of home lifts, we’ve uploaded real-life case studies featuring clients who have greatly improved their quality of life through home lift installations to our website. These stories serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for both OTs and their clients. Check out the MMS Medical Installations here
4. Additional Resources
We have individual brochures, technical specifications and drawings for all our Home Lift products. We carry out free on site assessment and can work with all partners including builders, architects, councils and other stakeholders to asess, plan, design and install homelifts. Your client can also have peace of mind knowing that we can support them into the future offering servicing and repairs nationwide.
