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
