New Assistive Technology Program Helps Patients With Disabilities
Tim Iverson is an inpatient on the rehabilitation unit who sustained a spinal cord injury resulting in quadriplegia. He has limited use of his upper extremities but through the use of assistive technology is now able to control his environment (TV, telephone, etc.) maneuver his wheelchair, and use a computer. Tim now has a clearer picture of the assistive technologies he is going to need on discharge to help him maximize his independence.
