ATC is a leader in innovative rehabilitation, matching technology with the client’s pathology to maximize a client’s quality of life. Our clinicians and technical team work together across all of our programs to evaluate and implement solutions for our client’s needs. Below are some examples where technology has been integrated within our programs.


Seating and Mobility Equipment

Through the Seating and Mobility Clinic, clients can obtain mobility aids such as:

  • Low tech mobility aids such as canes, walkers, and rollators
  • Standard wheelchairs such as manual lightweight wheelchairs,  and dynamic tilt wheelchairs
  • Power mobility aids such as scooters and standard power wheelchairs
  • High tech power positioning including tilt, recline, elevation, and/or standing wheelchairs

EADL

EADL Tablet assistive technology

The Assistive Technology Clinic’s Electronic Aids to Daily Living (EADL) program aims to maximize the independence of persons with acquired disabilities by using specialized and customized technical solutions. Electronic Aids to Daily Living are electronic devices used by individuals who enable them to interact with their environments (home, work, or leisure). For more information please see our EADL page here for more info.


 Alternative and Augmentative Technology

Eye Tracking assistive technology

The AAC team uses advanced technology to enable our clients to overcome their communication challenges. This may include using devices to generate artificial voice output or computerized devices to assist with written communication when manual handwriting is not possible or functional.  Please see our Augmentative and Alternative Communications Clinic page for more information.


Gait Technology

Bioness assistive technology

 

Bioness ™ is a programmed functional electrical stimulation device that stimulates appropriate nerves/muscles in the leg/arm (L300/H200) to achieve movements appropriate to functional tasks.  They are used in out Gait technology Program and our Upper Extremity program.

 


Robotics

Keeogo assistive technology

 

Keeogo ™/K-SRD™  are wearable robotic devices that can assist in certain functional movements including walking, kneeling,
sit-to-stand, and going up/down stairs. ATC is presently using these devices in our Gait Technology Program  as well as current research projects.

 


Anti-Gravity Treadmill

Alter G assistive technology

 

Alter-G ™ is an anti-gravity treadmill that provides partial weight-bearing using air pressure. It can be used for gait training without excessive stress to the joints, as well as achieving cardiovascular fitness in a safe, falls free environment.
