Detailed information about various aspects of the vocational rehabilitation is available from eight databases designed for use by disabled people as well as professionals involved in rehabilitation.

Information about the Case Studies database:

This database can be searched in German and English. Almost 60% of the documents are manually translated into English. For the other documents the descriptions of the case studies will be translated automatically.

The database documents examples of successful vocational integration measures for disabled persons that have already been put into practice.

Workplace design

About 1,000 case studies describe the situation of people with different disabilities and their individual integration into the workplace. The documentation is extensive and often supplemented by pictures and graphics.

Each case study contains information on the ergonomic and organisational layout of the workplace as well as the technical aids needed to adapt the working environment for the disabled person. In addition, specific training and supervision requirements are described. Finally, there is a description of the disability and the resulting functional limitations.
The database is widely recognised in Germany and abroad. It aims at documenting as many cases as possible in order to illustrate the huge potential for vocational integration of persons with disabilities. We are therefore grateful for all new cases made known to us for this purpose and guarantee absolute anonymity of all personal data.
