Occupational Therapy is an area of medicine that steps beyond the 'prevention and cure' mantra to the maximal independence of the individual. It focuses on recuperation, giving confidence to people whose disability may be caused by a stroke, a mental illness, a physical and mental weariness because of cardiac or other illnesses or even a hereditary deficiency.
Occupational therapists must break through their patient's barriers and create a pathway for that person to return to normal life, at home and in the workplace. The therapist may design customized treatment programs or design special equipment that allows the disabled person to adapt to his disability.
