There is no overview of home assessment tools nor any study summarizing information about current home assessment practice. The main goal of this thesis was to explore home assessment and home visit practice in the Czech republic using a questionaire-based survey among Czech occupational therapists. The results were to be compared to data gathered from foreign respondents. Theoretical part discusses the topic of the thesis iand presents information on home assessment tools. Chosen ones are described in detail (Cougar, WeHSA, Housing Enabler, SEMAFOR home). Practical part summarizes the results of the questionaire using tables, graphs and statistical analysis. Data from 144 Czech and 135 foreign respondents was gathered and analysed.

Rohlenová, Eva ; Rodová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Svobodová, Tereza (referee)
The main goal of this thesis was to design a computer program applicable in occupational therapy in cognitive rehabilitation. I designed a PC program focused on shopping practice. Its main advantages are: the absence of any charges, the possibility of using it on an ordinary PC and the accessibility via the Internet. The designed program, named Trénink nakupování (~Shopping training), had been implemented in a beta version. Afterwards, it was tested and evaluated with a questionnaire by five stroke patients. The results show that all patients evaluated the program very positively and they believe in its benefits for the rehabilitation. The theoretical part describes cognitive training and shopping from the perspective of an occupational therapist. Four PC training programs focused on shopping training are described. Other sections provide detailed information about the designed program. The practical part consists of testing, the evaluation of questionnaires and suggesting ways to improve the program in the future. Key words: cognitive rehabilitation, cognitive training, iADL, shopping, program design, computer-assisted training, PC program, brain injury Powered by TCPDF (
