Seminar “Safety and Comfort”
With the support of the Latvian Association of Ergotherapists we have planned to organize a cycle of seminars on safety and comfort in everyday life for persons with special needs.
The seminars shall comprise an exhaustive scope of information about the possibilities to receive and to use technical aids taking into account factors of falling and trauma risks.
Riga Stradins University Ergotherapy program’s students and members of the students’ subdivision of the Latvian Association of Ergotherapists Sabīne Mikulāne, Anita Gžibovska, and Jana Bagņana informed MOTUS VITA members and other participants about circulation system of technical aids, alternatives of receiving technical aids, and main prevention principles. Practicing ergotherapists Toms Bērants and Aleksandrs Grjadovojs also took part in the seminar in order to provide answers to the questions.
The first seminar was only the beginning of the large program oriented towards improvement of the quality of life for persons with special needs.
