Tools help people.

Assistive technology helps make life easier, safer or more independent.

Everyone uses tools and technology to make life easier. From a knife or scissors to a telephone or computer, we invent things to help ourselves. 

For many people, technology make things easier. For some people, technology makes things possible!

As we all go through life, at some time we face an accident, injury or sickness. We use tools and technology to help us during those times. Do you know anyone who has used a crutch? Do you own a pair of glasses?


Needs change. Technology changes. You know what you need. We know technology. Let us help.

  1. I am almost totally deaf from many surgeries since my teens almost 73 years old and no transportation since my car was totaled in December 2018. Can anybody help me choose what is best. Doctor said I need a cochlear and a new aid won’t help.

    1. Hello Elaine. Thank you for reaching out. I recommend that you call our office on Monday (after the holiday) and chat with us a bit more. We cannot advise cochlear implants, but perhaps you can use some of our programs.
