Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) and adaptive equipment can enhance or simplify your life, facilitate your independence, and help you achieve your goals. Whether related to activities of daily living, home, work, recreation, community service or other interests, AT is anything that allows you to do tasks yourself.

AT ranges from durable medical equipment (wheelchair, walker, cane) to pesonal devices (glasses, hearing aid, modified telephone, electric door opener, flashing signal, talking clock) to mechanical devices (reacher, grabber) to complex technology (computer program, personal digital assistant [PDA]).


If needed, ILRC can refer you to a third party that can evaluate your needs to determine which AT device are best suited to you.  To get the information from your nearest office, click here.
