June AT Inventory Highlights

June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month. PTSD is a mental health condition that can develop after a person experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. This month, we want to help raise awareness about the disorder and issues that come with it, reduce the stigma associated with the condition, and help those with PTSD receive the treatment and supports they need. For June, our AT specialist selected devices that might help people experiencing PTSD symptoms.

  • Dodow - Some people with PTSD struggle with insomnia. The Dodow sleep machine uses light-guided breathing exercises to prepare your body for sleep. 
  • Snuggle Compression Sheet - These fitted sheets slip over your mattress and provide light compression while you sleep. These are a lighter option than something like a weighted blanket, which some people find uncomfortable.
  • Companion Cat - This animatronic animal may be able to serve as an emotional support companion for those who do not want the responsibility of a live pet! Cuddling with the Companion Cat can be comforting, especially when it purrs. There are also dog and bird options! 
  • Bluetooth Headphones - These noise-canceling headphones can be used alone to block sound, or plugged into a device to deliver more targeted sound during phone calls, video games, or other device-related activities.
The Bluetooth Headphones, Dodow, Companion Cat, and Snuggle Compression Sheet are arranged on one end of a couch.

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. Visit the Device Loan Program webpage to learn more.
