  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book
    in it or something. I think that you can do with
    some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
    instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

  2. I agree with the comments above as well. This is a great resource for us and many of the devices I did not know about; so it is nice to have this list where we can also do further research ourselves to figure out if something could be useful to a future client!

  3. I agree with the previous comments about how this is a very comprehensive list and a great resource. I think that many people may not be getting the devices they need not for financial reasons, but because they don’t know what all is out there that they could benefit from. Not only is this a good resource for professionals and students, but because it is on the internet, people who need the devices can also benefit from it and advocate for the devices they think would be beneficial. I think it is great that we have so much equipment and devices readily available to help people do the things they want to do.

    1. I also really like how the list was broken down into categories. For new grads and those doing internships, this is a great reference when looking to use adaptive equipment. There were a lot of things on the list that I was previously unaware of. It is always very beneficial to have resources like this!

    2. I agree with the previous statement that it can give me ideas to what might work for future clients. It also allows me to see if I can make a homemade device similar to the ones you can buy but might be cheaper or even give the client or family information how to make a device that the client can use.

  5. This list of adaptive technology is very informative. Not only is this list beneficial for OT’s but it can be useful for caregivers or other health professionals. The products are categorized well and include brief descriptions which are very helpful for those who may not be familiar with the product.
