Equipment & Assistive Technology may include:
- Technologies that assist with communication, vision, hearing, mobility, or dexterity impairments

- Adaptive technologies to enhance mobility
- Features and tools to allow the use of computers and tablets

If you experience difficulties performing certain tasks, it’s possible that equipment or assistive technology could help you overcome your challenges. Your Occupational Therapist completes an assessment to determine the nature of equipment and/or assistive technology you may need in alignment with your goals.
Our Occupational Therapists work with you to identify, set up and train you on how to use the equipment or assistive technology that meet your specific needs and goals.
Our OT’s aim is to empower you to live a quality life through:
Manual Handling Equipment
Pressure Care Equipment
Beds and Chairs
Our Equipment and Assistive Technology are built around you and your lifestyle.
