Being – Creative Arts Facilitation in Physiotherapy

Health Care, Aging, Others

The venture aims to serve as a pioneering pilot programme in Hong Kong, promoting the integration of physiotherapy and creative arts as a prototype for “Creative Rehabilitation” services. It hopes to provide engaging, personalised, and efficient services by adopting a holistic approach to rehabilitation.

To ease the healthcare burden on society, the venture offers innovative rehabilitation services in addition to traditional options. Through the collaboration of interdisciplinary expertise, it also aims to improve treatment outcomes and reduce the substantial medical expenses and costs of living incurred by chronic illness for patients and their caregivers, thereby contributing to poverty alleviation. Meanwhile, group therapy engages patients in social activities. The connections provide an emotional lift, helping patients think more positively during the rehabilitation process. It helps avoid potential issues of self or social isolation, ensuring a bright and healthy later life.

With a team of registered occupational therapists, Brainy Training Kits uses their professional knowledge to design a training kit for people with dementia. The goal is to slow the progression of the disease and alleviate the burden on caregivers and medical staff.
