Safety Home Modifications & Precautions for Parkinson's Patients

Just diagnosed?

Many adaptations can be made to the home to make it easier for a person living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) to get around and maintain their daily activities. One of the best resources for assessing and making recommendations for home adaptations is an occupational therapist.  They are licensed healthcare professionals that are focused on enabling their patients to engage in daily activities as seamlessly as possible. One of the ways occupational therapists do this is through suggesting adaptations or modifications to the person’s environment.

Home adaptations for people with PD range from small changes to major building changes requiring construction. Adaptations to the home may include:

  • Adding rails to doorways or stairs

  • Creating half steps to make large steps smaller

  • Installing ramps

  • Widening doorways

  • Removing or leveling threshold strips between rooms

  • Adding stair lifts

  • Replacing a bath with a walk-in shower

  • Installing a tub transfer bench

  • Adding shower chairs

  • Mounting bars or handrails in tubs, showers or near the toilet

  • Placing non-skid rubber bath mats in showers or tubs

  • Installing a raised toilet seat or commode frame

  • Switching out faucets to those that are easier to grasp or those that only require a touch to turn on

  • Inserting chair or bed raisers

  • Adding a handle or bed rail for getting out of bed

  • Adding a motion-activated nightlight

What are your thoughts about a portable shower?

Would you consider an Indoor portable wheelchair shower?  Maybe it is an ideal solution for temporary needs, and when bathroom renovations may not be an option.

The Wet Room, Farmington Hills

Wet rooms are waterproof bathrooms where there are no shower trays to step into or and obstacles can be kept to a minimum. Having everything ‘level-access’ and immediately accessible is the ultimate in hassle-free bathing. Wheelchair users won’t have to worry about getting in and out of a shower or bath. Simply wheel a bathing chair to the desired position, have a wash, get dried and get on with the rest of your day!

Accessibility & Technology: Microsoft Xbox Adaptive Controllers

Technology is working alongside Accessibility more than ever.

Microsoft is coming out with adaptive Xbox controllers and we are all excited!

Watch the video bellow to see all the attachments you can use...

Designed primarily to meet the needs of gamers with limited mobility, the Xbox Adaptive Controller is a unified hub for devices that help make gaming more accessible. Connect external devices such as switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to create a custom controller experience that is uniquely yours.

Click here to go to Microsoft Xbox website.

 

According to Microsoft Story Labs page

" The new Xbox Adaptive Controller, which will be available later this year, can be connected to external buttons, switches, joysticks and mounts, giving gamers with a wide range of physical disabilities the ability to customize their setups. The most flexible adaptive controller made by a major gaming company, the device can be used to play Xbox One and Windows 10 PC games and supports Xbox Wireless Controller features such as button remapping. "

There is a group of gamers who have tested these controllers. One of the gamers, Dan Bertholomey, is excited for the endless possibilities the controllers have. He now plans on competing again in eSports! 

Another gamer, Solomon Romney said,

"I can customize how I interface with the Xbox Adaptive Controller to whatever I want. If I want to play a game entirely with my feet, I can. I can make the controls fit my body, my desires, and I can change them anytime I want. You plug in whatever you want and go. It takes virtually no time to set it up and use it. It could not be simpler. I get to redesign my controller every day and get to choose how I want to play, Romney said. For me, that's the greatest thing ever." 

There is so much more to read and learn about the Xbox adaptive controllers.

I am very excited but really I am happy this FINALLY exists. Inclusivity matters. Sofia was thinking the same thing as me, It's about time!

Would you use these controllers? Have you made your own adaptive controller?
