Occupational therapy is a medical activity that enables an individual's optimal functioning in everyday life activities.
It is intended for people whose abilities to perform them have been diminished and disturbed by development, injury, old age, psychological, socially, or a combination of all mentioned. It is the relation between functional difficulty and activities of everyday life. In cases of injuries and illnesses, it enables returning to life similar to the one the patient previously had.
The main goal of occupational therapy is to, through rehabilitation, help a person be as independent and fulfilling as possible, and that is achieved by using specific patterns of movement that the person learns for the first time or again, step by step, with compensations, using tools, ergonomic adaptation or substitution of specific activities with other that the patient can perform on their own.
Occupational therapy is also good prevention in children born with special needs; it develops sensorimotor, cognitive, and social abilities. It helps retain the existing life habits and interests and encourages people to train in the essential skills. If needed, there is also a possibility to develop new ways to perform everyday activities. The sooner the occupational therapy is implemented in the rehabilitation process, the sooner and faster the patient will return to an active life. Occupational therapy dramatically improves each patient's quality of life, independence, and freedom.
To have the most permanent and highest quality results or rehabilitation, in the Polyclinic Glavić, we offer the GLARTH protocol – a unique combination of neurorehabilitation therapies, conventional and robotic, individually created for adult patients and children, depending on their medical condition, clinical picture, diagnosis, physical shape and the goal of therapy agreed in coordination with the patient and relatives.
This combination of conventional medicine and robotics contributes to a more efficient and faster improvement in rehabilitation than one with classical therapy.
