Abstract

A questionnaire about assistive devices for lift and transfer was distributed to all individuals evaluated at the Solberga Project outpatient service unit, a regional centre for long-term follow-up of severelybrain injured persons in the Greater Stockholm area. The target groupwas 60 severely brain injured adults, of whom 57 (30 women and 27 men) answered a questionnaire created by one of the authors. The causes of injury in the study population were trauma (n = 27), cerebrovascularaccident (n = 19), anoxia (n = 10) and other (n = 1). Thirty-two persons were quadriplegic after the injury and 21 were hemiplegic. More than half (33/57) reported problems with all five defined lift and transfer situations. Most (42/44) reported problems getting in and out of their wheelchairs. Technical aids were seldom used; 24 persons did not use any aids at all. The most commonly used aid was an adjustable bed. Most of the technical aids were used when the individual also had personal assistance. The persons who managed lift and transfer by themselves used few aids. It is reasonable to assume that severely brain injured individuals would be involved in more activities if they used technical aids more readily.
