This portal uses the ICF classification to find information - so initially, as a research tool. As a key information provider on disability, work and participation, REHADAT has linked parts of its content to ICF items. Thus, users of the portal can find information on assistive technology, practical examples of workplace adaptations and literature using the classification structure:
In the assistive technology section, solutions for everyday life, work and leisure are presented and described in detail. The product overview is neutral and structured.
The practical examples describe concrete and real examples of work design, such as conversions in companies or organisational changes such as adjustments to working hours and processes.
The literature section includes, for example, textbooks, guides, technical papers and scientific studies on the rehabilitation and participation of people with disabilities or illnesses.
Searching via the ICF classification can be helpful if, for example, you are looking for an assistive device but have no idea what kind of assistive device it might be. Then, for example, a search using an everyday activity such as "grasping" can give an overview of which assistive devices can be used if you have difficulty grasping objects. In addition, examples of workplaces where gripping aids are used is shown, as well as relevant literature on the subject being searched for.
