Hands-On Training for Occupational Therapy Students

Most Occupational Therapy students complete their education without ever having seen the rehabilitation equipment their patients will require. IUPUI’s Department of Occupational Therapy recognized this gap and partnered with Home Health Depot’s South Indianapolis Retail Store to host students for an in-store educational seminar.

Students received hands-on training with a wide variety of products, including power scooters, lift chairs, stair lifts, mobility aids, compression hosiery, grab bars, and home modifications. As a result, the next generation of Occupational Therapists is now better able to deliver care to their patients, enabling them to live more independently and safely.
