Videos of exact techniques! Treatment idea for #OTs working on dressing with their adult patients. | SeniorsFlourish.com #geratricOT #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapist #occupationaltherapyassistantHere are some quick and easy occupational therapy treatment ideas to work on some of those range of motion, safety and ADL task components of donning a shirt, pants and bra with your patients using a theraband when the actually completing the occupation of dressing is not an option.

Occupation based tasks are always top priority, but sometimes cannot be done, so purposeful replication of a task is a close second! You can also do this with a little baby powder on the theraband if it is sticking too much to their clothes.
