Your Remote Assessment Navigation Service

A new remote assess and supply service to support Occupational Therapists and Discharge Teams to help make your everyday life easier during COVID-19

EthosGPS is a remote assessment service with a Handicare Moving and Handling Key Support Worker via Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime or a phone call. 

The remote assessment will follow a sequence of questions and a concise practical assessment to ascertain whether your client can GPS -  Grip, Push and Shuffle.

If your client is able to GPS - Grip, Push & Shuffle - this will indicate that they have a Functional Independence Measure (FIM) level of 3, 4, 5 or 6. From this remote assessment we will be able to recommend a Handicare Moving and Handling equipment, such as the ReTurn7500i and ReTurnBelt, to assist your client and their family member/ carers to help keep them at home for longer, or enable hospital discharge.
