What is Assistive Technology?

Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) is any device, system and/or related service that maintains or improves the functional capability of individuals with disabilities. AT can be beneficial to people of all ages with a variety of disabilities, both long-term and short term. AT could be considered ”tools for independence” to allow someone to live, work, learn or play more independently.

Virtual Seating Assessments: Comfort and Safety for Wheelchair Users
Proper fit of the wheelchair and seating components is essential for any mobility device. The correct wheelchair and seating system can increase independence, prevent skin breakdown and improve comfort. If you have concerns with your current wheelchair or are in need of assessment, please reach out to our team for assistance.

Augmentative-Alternative Communication (AAC) Assessments
Our staff are experts in determining technology available that can help someone who has a communication limitation successfully communicate with others. Through our AAC ASSESSMENT service, various devices and strategies, both low and high-tech will be tested to determine what works best for the client.

Our Staff: Knowledge and experience!
Assistive Technology Services are provided by skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable team members. Staff work hard to remain current with the latest technology and equipment by attending national conferences, participating in web-based seminars, and researching the latest technology. The assessments are comprehensive, driven by your needs, and integrated within our therapy services.
