Chances are if you’re looking for the best occupational therapist toilet lifting techniques, then you also want to know what tips there are for the best occupational therapist toilet lifting techniques are as well. Great news, you’re in the right place. One thing most occupational therapists won’t tell you or advise however is that the lifts themselves depend completely on the persons body type. If someone is 5’8″and the other is 6’4″ that makes a HUGE difference as to how their approach will be in handling patients to minimize lower back and upper body injuries. Of course as you may have already been told by others for their tips on occupational therapist toilet lifting techniques, is that you want to lift with your legs.
As easy as that may sound, if you’re an in-home caregiver that is tending to someone who hasn’t exactly fitted their house completely to accomodate their parapalegia then things are likely more difficult than they should be. And, this is coming from having been an in-home caregiver myself, I can assure you that the toilet lifting techniques and bed transfer techniques are the two to master if you want to have longevitity in your career as either an occupational therapist providing guidance to others, or a caregiver who’s actually providing the care. Either way, one of our goals here at Pants Up Easy was to eliminate some of the uncessary lifts caregivers and OP’s have to go through throughout their day. Things like: Helping their patients put on their pants, helping with readjustments, pressure relief, and so much more.
We’re convinced that if you’ve looked through all the occupational therapist toilet lifting techniques out there and STILL are looking for more, it’s not so much a problem with technique it’s problem with the not having a Pants Up Easy to eliminate some of those lifts on the daily.
