MENTAGY- An Occupational Therapist Perspective

Mentagy is a progressively challenging puzzle that is adaptable to all age-groups. As an occupational therapist, I have used this modality for a varied patient population including strokes, multiple sclerosis, orthopedic/injuries and all cognition/problem-solving difficulties. Mentagy is one of the few treatment modalities that easily enables the therapist to moderate the skill-level towards each patient.

I will continue to use and recommend Mentagy to all therapists that are yearning for successful, measurable outcomes in both physical disability and psychosocial environments. Mentagy is an inexpensive, durable, light-weight, effective, and portable modality for hospitals, rehab facilities, skilled nursing and even home-health environments. Jodie D. Stafford, OTR/L
