Come try out assistive devices and see how are they used at our Labs

Assistive Technology (AT) is any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a person with disabilities and older adults.

Some examples of Assistive Technologies available to test in our labs:

mobility aid devices icon
People with physical disabilities that affect movement can use mobility aids, such as wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, canes, crutches, prosthetic devices, and orthotic devices, to enhance their mobility.      
hearing aid devices icon
Hearing aids can improve hearing ability in persons with hearing problems.
cognitive assistance icon
Cognitive assistance, including computer or electrical assistive devices, can help people function following brain injury.
computer hardware and software icon
Computer software and hardware, such as voice recognition programs, screen readers, and screen enlargement applications, help people with mobility and sensory impairments use computer technology.
Closed Captioning devices icon
Closed captioning allows people with hearing impairments to enjoy movies and television programs.
Light weight high performance wheel chairs
Lightweight, high-performance wheelchairs have been designed for organized sports, such as basketball, tennis, and racing.
occupational therapy aids icon
Many types of devices help people with disabilities perform such tasks as cooking, dressing, and grooming. Kitchen implements are available with large, cushioned grips to help people with weakness or arthritis in their hands. Medication dispensers with alarms can help people remember to take their medicine on time. People who use wheelchairs for mobility can use extendable reaching devices to reach items on shelves.
