The highly specialized field of Rehabilitation Engineering can open new worlds of independence for individuals with disabilities. The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center’s Assistive Technology Solutions is one of the area’s only programs with a Rehabilitation Engineering Technologist on staff.
Many adults and children can achieve dreams of living, learning, working and playing independently. Access to complex rehabilitative and assistive technology services and equipment can turn those dreams into reality.
Living safely, functionally, and comfortably at home is essential. Our experts can evaluate the home environment and recommend modifications ranging from wheelchair ramps and platform lifts to accessible showers, kitchen adaptations, and other changes.
We also visit schools, colleges, and workplaces to assess the need for physical modifications, assistive hardware and software. Evaluations may focus on computer access, environmental controls, low vision aids, ergonomics, and more, based upon the individual’s abilities and goals.
