We are a team of healthcare professionals who specialize in using assistive technology and ergonomics to find the most effective individualized solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
Our assistive technology lab and hearing health centre offers compassionate and client centered service, and a state-of-the-art facility that allows us to help people with all types of disabilities.
Ergonomics is the best practice of alignment of your body to reduce pain, stress and fatigue. This also reduces long term effects that sitting or standing incorrectly can have on your body mind and health.
Our trained and certified occupational therapists can assess your work environment, the equipment you use and make suggestions on improving your overall experience.
Assistive Technology is considered anything that aids or enhances your ability to perform your day to day activities associated with your working environment.
Our Assistive Technology Evaluation can provide you with various equipment and techology that allows you to be able to carry out your duties at work that you weren’t able to do before.
Untreated hearing loss can negatively impact many aspects of a person’s life, including personal relationships and work performance, and can lead to depression and social isolation.
Dedicated to the prevention and treatment of hearing loss, we are a fully equipped hearing health centre offering compassionate and client centered service in the Greater Vancouver area.
