A bicycle accident left Pilar paralyzed. Despite her spine injury, she wanted to return to her job as an accountant as soon as possible. Pilar's employer contacted Kai, a Workplace Possibilities consultant, for help. To meet both her work and medical needs, Kai developed solutions tailored for Pilar.
Kai evaluated Pilar's workspace with an ergonomics expert before coordinating with local equipment vendors to:
- Find the best office layout — including desk height and computer monitor distance, plus keyboard, mouse and phone headset capabilities
- Install the right equipment
Kai also made sure the office layout and equipment worked with Pilar's wheelchair and allowed her to recline to relieve pressure on her spine.
Kai followed up with Pilar often. He adjusted what wasn't working, looked into alternative options, and upgraded equipment and software. After a few months, Pilar reached her goal of returning to work on a modified schedule.
