Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Sep 4, 2020

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

TherAdapt is a therapist-owned company offering many solutions for individuals with different special needs.  One cool product I stumbled upon is the TherAdapt Wheelchair Platform Rocker!

The Wheelchair Platform Rocker gives individuals in wheelchairs the opportunity to experience the benefits of rocking while sitting in their own wheelchair.  Some benefits include improving concentration, balance, body awareness, and more.

Other features of the TherAdapt Wheelchair Platform Rocker include:

Three different platforms to choose from, each meeting different needs and goals of the user
Easily roll on and off via the rear ramp
Promotes relaxation, vestibular stimulation, and more
Made of baltic birchwood
Pair of adjustable front castor stops to center the chair on the platform to optimize rocking
Comes with two securing straps to tie wheelchair down for safety
Check out to learn more!
