Adaptive Equipment For Workplace

Adaptive Equipment For Workplace

Many people who work with physical disabilities should be provided with adaptive equipment even at their work place and if they are not, then they should demand it from their employers. Employers who hire physically disabled people are eligible for reimbursement for the money spent on special equipment for disabled people.

If any disabled person is working for an employer for more than eight hours a week, then it is the employer’s responsibility to provide them with adaptive equipment. This reimbursement is also qualified for physically disabled people who are self employed. The type of equipment also depends on what type of job the person holds and what the job responsibilities entail.

If the physically disabled person is  expected to move around a bit and also do some clerical work such as data entry on a computer or using the billing system on the computer, then they should be provided with a mobile wheel chair that can take them around and also give sufficient back support and support their limbs. Such chairs are made specially and it should be bought from the adaptive equipment store.

Sometimes, even the insurance company allows such equipment for people whether you provide it through the insurance of the employee or through claiming reimbursement it should be a part of the office furniture. No employer can make a perfect working environment for a physically challenged employee but they can be more empathetic by providing equipment for people with special needs. This might include small changes in the cafeteria or a reserved place or cabinet in the office area.
