Occupational rehabilitation is appropriate and individually selected for patients under the control of a physiotherapist and ergotherapist and has to be "tailored". Allows, based on individual training plans not only exercise of daily living activities, but also work habits and skills needed to get a job or maintaining the original work. It is an important means of therapy for those individuals who are not expected to improve their health status and to shift to a different profession, whereby the patient is able to integrate into mainstream society. Targeted measures allow reintegration into the labor market with respect for individual professional needs, capabilities and skills of the individual. Well performed work and independence of its performance leads to higher life satisfaction and self-assessment.

Key words: Ergoteraphy, Ergotherapist, The Ergotherapy process.
