The Latest at ABLE Tech!
November AT Inventory Highlights
Assistive Technology (AT) can be used in a variety of ways, for a variety of purposes. It can support people in carrying out everyday tasks and activities, enhance their safety, support their social participation, monitor their health, and more. Since November is National Family Caregiver Month, our AT specialists selected devices that may be especially helpful in a home caregiving setting!
Click on the devices listed below to view their information in NATADS, ABLE Tech’s AT inventory database.
- Leg Lifter - This can be used by the caregiver (or the individual, depending on their mobility) to lift a person’s leg and increase the ease of transfers.
- Caregiver Pager with Call Buttons - This device has two call buttons and two different sound settings. The pager can be clipped onto a belt, and the buttons have a lanyard so that they can be worn around the neck.
- Uplift Power Seat - This is a portable lift seat. It raises the user in slow, controlled movements to help them transition to a standing position safely. This could help a caregiver transfer a person with less strain on the caregiver.
- iEat Feeding Robot - This device is designed for individuals who do not have use of their hands or arms. It is a device that will feed an individual, which can lighten the load of a caregiver.
Oklahoma ABLE Tech's Short-Term Device Loan inventory offers almost 5,000 devices in many AT categories including hearing, speech communication, vision, learning cognition/development, seating/positioning/mobility, daily living, recreation, environmental adaptations, computer access, and vehicle modifications.
