Seating & Mobility Clinic
The Seating and Mobility clinic caters to people with mobility impairments related to neurological, orthopedic, cardiac, pulmonary and other challenges.
Systems prescribed include low-tech interventions — from type one walkers and simple manual wheelchairs, to complex seating and high tech electronic mobility systems — as well as high-tech intervention for power mobility including tilt, recline, power actuators, articulating ventilation trays and alternative access systems.
The ATC team specializes in assessing alternative access via head controls, sip and puff, modified joysticks, chin controllers; our team has developed superior expertise interfacing these technologies with patient’s existing tools.
These interventions make the possibilities for improved quality of life endless.
The seating team consists of Occupational Therapists, administrative staff and vendor representatives of health care products. Community health care professionals, family members and/or caregivers are invited and encouraged to attend clinic appointments to ensure that the total needs of the client are met and that the seating and mobility equipment is compatible with the client’s community environment.
This clinic accepts self-referrals however, it is strongly encouraged to have a referral from a medical doctor or therapist (OT/PT).
This is a fee-for-service program.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ATC has had to limit the number of referrals we can see. Consequently, we can only accommodate our internally referred patients and will not be accepting any community referrals for our Seating and AAC clinics at this time.
We will continue to see our existing ALS, stroke, MS and PD patients and internal referrals for these diagnoses in Seating and AAC clinic.
Thank you for your understanding.
