- integration of people with disabilities into work - is a profile comparison procedure in professional rehabilitation to compare the requirements of a job with the skills of a person. The process was developed by an interdisciplinary team of doctors, psychologists and ergonomists. The assessment procedure is suitable for use in outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation facilities or in companies, for example for implementing occupational integration management (BEM
) or for risk assessment in occupational safety.
Work requirements and human skills can be described and compared using defined characteristics. From the resulting need for action, targeted measures for designing work and promoting skills can be derived. IMBA
is used as an instrument for quality assurance in occupational therapy and in activity-oriented medical rehabilitation.
MARIEplus is the new software for the IT
application of IMBA
. MARIE stands for Matching Abilities and Requirements to Increase Evidence.
The individual characteristics are assigned to nine characteristic groups:
- Posture (e.g. sitting)
