Assistive Technology Assessments
Let us help you find the right assistive technology to suit your needs
Live without limitations.
Find out how an assistive technology assessment can give you a new lease on life. Whether you need help with everyday tasks or you’re keen to try the latest gadgets in assistive technology, we’re here to help you find the right equipment for your needs.
What type of Assistive Technology do I need?
Our Assistive Technology Assessments are all about you. We go through all of your options in detail and help you understand which assistive technology (AT) you’ll need and how to use it. No matter how small or big your requirement may be, from watches to wheelchairs, we’ll find the right solutions for you.
Our experienced therapists offer assistive technology assessments for all ages. There is no one-size-fits-all in AT, so we’ll take the time to find out what your individual requirements are – with the goal of improving your engagement and independence in daily tasks.
We offer a trial service with most of our suppliers, so you can test out your AT items and see if they work for you. Assistive technology solutions may include:
- Adapted Cutlery
- Bathroom Aids (shower chair, handrails)
- Smart Watches
- Lifting and Handling aids
- Mobility Aids (wheelchairs, and scooters)
- Electric beds

How do Assistive Technology Assessments work?
Our qualified Occupational Therapists will visit you in your home, community or work environment. This way, they can work with you to identify the assistive technology to suit your lifestyle. Your assistive technology assessment will consider the following:
- What are some things you might be struggling with?
- What tasks do you enjoy but find difficult to complete?
- Are there any physical challenges in the space that can be altered?
- Can we add assistive technology to your environment to enhance usability (e.g. voice-activated technology)?
- Are there any portable technology solutions that may help you while you’re out and about (e.g. Smart Watch)?
- Are there any safety improvements that can be made to create a secure environment for you?

How quickly will I receive my Assistive Technology?
Once we complete your assessment, your Occupational Therapist will give you a timeline on when to expect your technology. The time will vary depending on the items, approval process and how quickly they can be sourced. Some AT products may be deemed high risk and involve in-depth reporting and analysis for approval. Smaller low-cost items, like a watch or a shower accessory, may be approved immediately for you. Rest assured that we will do our best to get your items to you as quickly as we can.
Will my Occupational Therapist help to set everything up?
Your Occupational Therapist will be there when your Assistive Technology is delivered to make sure you’re comfortable using all the new equipment. They will show you the best way to use your technology and help you get settled, ensuring you’re happy and comfortable with your items and they’re working for you.
At Verve OT, we’re with you every step of the way.
