May AT Inventory Highlights

May is Older Americans Month! Check out these AT devices chosen by our AT specialists from the Hearing, Mobility, Seating and Positioning, Speech Communication and Recreation categories that may be useful to individuals as they age!

Click on the devices listed below to view their information in NATADS, ABLE Tech’s AT inventory database.

  • Clarity TV Listener - Connect your television or smartphone to this device for high quality personal amplification of TV shows, phone calls, and music. This device has been especially useful in scenarios where people live closely together, like apartments or assisted living communities!
  • Support Plus Walker Tray - This easy-to-use meal tray slides over the handles of your walker to create a stable and convenient table that's perfect for situations like mealtime. The tray has a hard plastic base, raised edges to prevent spills, a removable non-slip pad with two recessed cup holders, and precision-cut slots that fit most standard walker handles.
  • Playing Cards and Holder - Large Print Playing Cards were designed for people who enjoy playing cards but have impaired or low vision. The 1-inch high bold numbers and designs are in black or red on a white background and are in the upper left corner. Pair them with the the Twin Tier Premiere Playing Card Holder, and you'll be playing cards for hours. The hands-free playing card holder can be used with both standard and over-sized playing cards. It provides an easy way to keep your hand organized, and can allow those with grip impairments to keep enjoying their favorite games.
  • Match up the Sayings - This game is a simple but effective, fun memory-jogging activity! Just find the two halves of a popular proverb or saying and match them together. This game is great for people with dementia, Alzheimer's, or just those wanting to work on their memory.
  • Speech Apps - There are multiple options for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) apps that can be used on an iPad! One example is Apraxia Therapy Lite, which can help navigate apraxia and aphasia, using video to help people speak again after a stroke or other conditions. Search our Device Loan Program inventory to see all the AAC app options and read more about each.
The Large Print Playing Cards and Twin Tier Premiere Playing Card Holder, an iPad with the Apraxia Therapy Lite app open, the Clarity TV Listener, and the Match up the Sayings game are placed on a wooden table.

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.
