The Outpatient Occupational Therapy (OT) department sees patients who have experienced neurological problems such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, Multiple Sclerosis, and others.
Once a physician referral is received, an Occupational Therapist will evaluate and develop a treatment plan in conjunction with the patient and family.
Some areas addressed by OT include activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, home management) UE function, functional mobility, cognitive and visual impairments, and kitchen safety assessments.
Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center is a Bioness trained facility. Bioness (Ness H200) is an advanced therapy system designed to use mild electrical stimulation to improve the way your arm works or to decrease muscle spasms. With physician referral, we offer a trial of the H200, upper extremity orthosis to determine if this is appropriate for you. Please visit their website at www.bioness.com for additional information.
