What aspects should be taken into account when choosing a support product?

First of all, it is recommended to consult with a social health professional so that they can more concisely assess the needs of the dependent person and decide which support product is more appropriate.

However, there are several considerations that it is essential to take into account to offer the professional as much information as possible and help them make the most appropriate decision. After all, it is the caregivers and family members who know the dependent best:

– Obtain broad and clear information on the specific pathology suffered by the dependent person
– Know the degree of limitation of the dependent for their daily tasks
– Evaluate the rehabilitative capacity of the product. That is, will it improve the patient’s pathology or will only offer practical help
– Assess the real needs of the dependent person in their day today
– Agree with a professional on the product choice
