Assistive Technology

The Assistive Technology Department helps families and caregivers by providing specialized equipment to improve the quality of life of children and youth with disabilities in Manitoba and Nunavut.


The Assistive Technology Department helps children with disabilities reach their potential through the use of specialized equipment. The team will meet with you to learn more about your child’s strengths and goals.

Assistive technology can come in many different forms.  Some examples of assistive technology can include:

  • Wheelchairs, walkers, specialized bikes, and motorized ride-on toys can be used to help children move more easily.
  • Specialized seating and standing devices are used to help improve positioning to allow kids to develop strong and healthy bones while being in a comfortable position to learn, play, or eat.
  • Computer and tablet access equipment to learn, play, or communicate.
  • Ramps, lift systems, or smart home technology to improve home accessibility.
  • Bathing equipment for proper positioning and safety.

The Assistive Technology team is made up of many different individuals to help provide you with the best service. The therapy team includes both Occupational and Physical Therapists to help find out what is important to you and your child and figure out how assistive technology can help you reach your goals. The Design team includes engineers and technologists who work with technicians to create specialized equipment. You will also meet the administrative team who are there to help you schedule appointments.

Referrals can come from doctors, therapists, social workers, or families. To refer a child please contact us by phone, e-mail, or fax.
