The only materials you need to complete your home evaluation are

  • an iPad or any other mobile device with the magicplan app installed.
  • a Bluetooth enabled Laser distometer or tape measure.

To create your floor plan just complete the following steps:

  1. Watch this instruction video.
  2. Create floor plans using the magicplan app and a laser (or tape measure).
  3. Create different shapes of rooms mirroring the actual rooms, such as a hallway, bedroom, bathroom and elevator (if applicable), that best resemble your home.
  4. Use the laser (or tape measure) to measure each wall length and upload those values into the magicplan.
  5. Add objects and doors to make rooms look like your own.
  6. Measure the dimension of these objects and doors, such as door widths and bed size, and then upload the measurements within each specific object.
  7. Export the created floor plans to your rehabilitation institute or clinicians via e-mail.

Instructions for Health Professionals:

  1. Open the floor plan in the magicplan app.
  2. Freeze the walls in the room you are evaluating. To freeze a wall, tap the room twice, then tap "Freeze Walls" at the bottom of your screen.
  3. Evaluate all measurements to confirm if the door and hallway widths are wide enough for an individual’s DME, such as a wheelchair, medical bed, or commode.
  4. Select "Add Object" in the bottom left corner.
  5. Select Durable Medical Equip.
  6. Add DME objects within the floor plan, such as wheelchairs and commodes.
  7. Adjust the size of DME objects based on actual dimensions by tapping objects twice and entering the values.
  8. Move DME objects around to determine if the DME fits in the spaces.
