Equipment / assistive technology

People with muscle weakness can use aids and items of equipment (known as assistive technology) to help them live independently at home, participate in their work and leisure activities, and to continue to socialise with family, friends and the wider community. These often include walking sticks and frames, wheelchairs, grab rails and small ramps; and communication devices, such as alphabet or word charts, tablet computers and hands free computer pointers and mice. Some aids and equipment items are designed to help maintain comfort. These include electric beds and armchairs, pressure care mattresses, over toilet aids and transfer slings.
