Open Up! The Occupational Therapy Play and Storage Bench
MetadataShow full item record
This is no ordinary bench. With this simple design, one can evaluate and perform an endless variety of interventions without ever having to relocate. What makes this possible is the amazing ability of this bench to transform into a table. The inside allows for a great deal of storage and endless possibilities. When not being utilized as an intervention tool, this feature can still be used as seating, thus not wasting any space. OT clinics can easily become cramped and crowded when there is limited space and this bench solves many of those problems. Occupational therapists have flexibility, creativity, a surplus of ideas and can really be considered the multi-tool of the healthcare industry. Therefore, this workstation was designed to reflect the same versatile characteristics. The only limits as to what can be done with this bench is your own imagination. I have included some ideas of items that could be stored within this bench and grouped them into stations. I hope you enjoy creating this item and coming up with even more creative ways to use it!
