Keeping up with Technology

There is so much to share in the world of Occupational Therapy. Those following this blog might remember that we have a few themes on the go. This next group or series of posts will be all about "Keeping up with Technology" from an Occupational Therapy perspective of course.

Occupational Therapy is all about function. Technology when used correctly can improve and enhance function, saving time, conserving energy and freeing up much needed time for family, friends and leisure pursuits.

But there are setbacks, things to consider, plan for, watch out for etc.

We might look at a few daily living tasks and how technology has improved them.
We might take a look at theapy in general and use of technology in Therapy.

Then there is the new dimension of TeleHealth, TeleRehabilitation, Cybertherapy etc. Do you know what these terms are? Are you famliar with them? Are they helping or hindering appropriate relationships and effective therapeutic intervention.

We want to hear your thoughts too, so please make your comment.

Till next time, have a wonderful weekend and a restful Shabbat
