Assistive Technology Advisors

Assistive Technology Advisors help people newly diagnosed with a high level spinal cord injury learn how to independently use a computer, tablet or phone. It is a service provided by Aspire, a charity which supports people with a spinal cord injury.

A spinal cord injury to the cervical part of your spine, can significantly restrict the use of your arms and hands. With internet-based technology such an indispensable part of our lives, it’s essential for patients to be able to access these essential everyday devices.

The Aspire Assistive Technology Programme uses the most up-to-date technology, including a range of devices and software packages, to ensure patients can use any device as quickly and as effectively as possible.

The equipment includes the use of head-controlled mice, voice recognition software and various technologies that enable access to laptops, tablet computers, gaming controls and smartphones, among other things. There are effective options for injuries of any severity.

The Assistive Technology Advisors – several of which have spinal injuries themselves – assist patients in learning how to use the technology. This indispensable service helps people with recent spinal cord injuries to email friends and family, remain in control of their banking and even continue business activities.

Aspire Law is very proud to sponsor this vital service. Ensuring patients can stay connected is an immensely important part of adapting to a life-changing spinal injury.
