disablement various impacts of chronic and acute conditions on the functioning of specific body systems
impairement usually a consequence of a disease or pathology, some change that affects your anatomy, and keeps you from being able to participate in life at your normal ability -can be permanent, such as the effects of polio or temporary like a broken ankle.
functional limitations usually a result of an impairment, limitations limit your ability to perform tasks and activities efficiently - you can't get up your steps and into your house after breaking your foot.
system level of disablement model physiological and tissue level - identifies the disease
body level of disablement model loss or abnormality at tissue or organ level
task level of disablement model skills that a person must have appropriate ROM, strength, endurance, balance, etc (home vs hospital - the chairs)
context level of disablement model environment in which a skill is performed
social level of disablement model roles people play in their societal lives
