- Aids for Daily Living
- Communication Devices
- Computers and Computer Aids
- Environmental Control Systems
- Architectural and Vehicle Modifications
- Seating, Positioning and Mobility Devices
- Aids for Vision and Hearing
- Cooling Aids
The Application Process
Applications for the MSF Assistive Technology Program are available online or via postal mail. Questions will be asked regarding symptoms, level of disability, income, family support, and assistance requirements. This information helps the AT coordinator to assess the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs of the patient. Financial status also plays a role in determining eligibility for the MSF Assistive Technology Program.
Upon review, the AT coordinator will determine what AT will be provided through the MSF or if a referral to another resource is needed. All equipment is ordered from a licensed medical equipment supplier. For more information on AT or to access these services, call: (888) MSFOCUS (673-6287).
