Assistive products for personal care and safety
We help to provide our participants with the right assistive technology products to use for their personal care and safety. Some of the products that fall under this category include beds, pressure mattresses, equipment to adapt toilets and showers, plus specialised clothing and continence tools.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines assistive products as “any product that enhances the capabilities of persons with disabilities, allowing them to perform tasks they would otherwise be unable to do.”
We offer a wide range of assistive devices from beds, bed rails, pressure mattresses and wheelchair technology to adapted bathrooms and toileting aids, plus home modifications and environmental controls. Electronic devices such as hearing aids, mobility aids, prosthetic devices, and sensory aids such as vision and communication aids are also available.
We also provide specialist advice on the best technology to suit individual circumstances. We understand that choosing the right assistive device is a very personal decision, one which requires careful consideration. Our qualified professionals will ensure you find the best product to match your individual needs, lifestyle and environment.
Assistive devices for communication
We provide assistive devices to help people with disabilities communicate. These can include picture boards, voice amplifiers, and speech-generating devices. The right device depends on a person’s individual needs and goals. We will assess the situation carefully and recommend the best product for their specific requirements.
Assistive technology products for mobility
In order to help our participants stay as independent and mobile as possible, we offer a range of assistive products for mobility. These include manual wheelchairs, electric scooters, ramps and lifts. We will advise on the best product to meet a person’s individual needs and budget considerations.
Assistive technology enables persons with disabilities to maintain or improve the individual’s functioning and independence, thereby promoting their well-being. We strive to provide access to these assistive technologies in a timely and cost-effective manner so that our participants can enjoy greater freedom and independence.
