The Role of Occupational Therapists at Maine AgrAbility

Maine AgrAbility is able to provide on-site visits by staff
who are occupational therapists (OTs) to discuss
specific situations and make general recommendations
of adaptive equipment or techniques. OTs are
professional health care providers trained in analyzing
work tasks and work patterns and can suggest
modifications to work tasks, tools, and equipment to
suit the specific needs of individual workers.
