Occupational therapists activate their patients’ physical, psychological and social skills in order to maintain and promote their independence. After accidents, injuries and physical and mental illnesses, they support the reintegration of patients into everyday life. The holistic view of people is in the foreground. Under these conditions, occupational therapists develop individual treatment plans and implement the appropriate therapies and preventive measures. For example, motor-functional, neurophysiological, psychosocial and occupational therapy treatment methods are used. Creative craft and design techniques are often used in therapy.
