Occupational Therapy Services

Joe, a Town Council groundsman, developed a medical condition in which sustained activity triggered pain and discomfort that reduced his capacity to work. Following assessment and interview with Joe and his manager, the suggested solution was to manage the activities required of him rather than change his job. Suitable products to negate the unwanted effects of sustained activity and vibration were identified so that the employer was able to respond positively to Joe’s needs in the workplace.

 

Mr N, a rewinder in a factory, sustained a crush and de-gloving injury to his right thumb in an accident at work. After major surgery and some months off work, he was referred for assessment by the Insurance Company. Although motivated to return to work, Mr N did not want to go back to the factory floor where the accident occurred. Following assessment, a gradual return to work on jobs other than the rewinder was implemented. After discussion with HSE the rewind machine was modified and six months later, through a programme of gradually increasing his hours, he returned to work full-time as a rewind operative.

 

Ms J, a clerical assistant, sustained a complex fracture to her left wrist outside of work. An initial assessment was carried out and she was provided with an ergonomic split keyboard and a telephone head set to enable her to use of both hands when on the phone. Pressure on the hypersensitive area of her wrist was removed, and her stamina and work tolerance increased with a graded return to work.
