  • IADLs (Instrumental Activities of daily living) – Shopping, Child care; suggests simpler techniques and modifications perform each task efficiently with minimal assistance from caregivers.
  • Work – Ergonomic modifications to patient’s workplace following injury/accidents, to make patients as functionally independent as possible or provide other options through vocational rehabilitation
