ILC WA releases Assistive Technology App for Consumers - Equip Me

Published

As reported by the Australian Ageing Agenda staff reporters in their Community Care Review, Education & Training online newsletter on January 11, 2017 "A free tablet App Equip Myself has been developed by the Independent Living Centre WA.  It aims to support people with disability to navigate the growing market in assistive technologies. The App helps users explore assistive equipment and technologies in the environments in which they would be used such as the kitchen, bathroom, garden, at work, or out and about in the community.


The app links to the national equipment database, which contains impartial information on more than 11,000 assistive technology products available nationwide....has been released to support Australians with disability to identify the range of assistive equipment and technology options that could improve their independence and wellbeing

Users of the App can also create their own profile and share their favourite equipment items with their support team.

The App has been designed by a team including people with disabilities, health professionals, coordinators, and digital design specialists.

The App Equip Myself is available on the App Store and Google Play."
