Abstract

Clinically severe obesity is a chronic condition affecting an increasing patient population. Attitudes, interventions, and equipment must be assessed and enhanced to provide the best possible care for these patients. However, basic principles of rehabilitation are effective in improving health and independence in individuals with this chronic medical condition. Such care can be provided in a manner that ensures safety for staff and patients.
