Find the correct fit
The ILCA’s goal is to ensure that people choose the most appropriate assistive technology to meet their needs, without commercial bias. High levels of assistive technology abandonment are well documented. Inappropriate selection of AT and social reasons are behind these high levels. Many people purchase “off the shelf” solutions without seeking clinical advice. For some, a reluctance to seek advice is part of a denial of disability (i.e. those people who may suffer from chronic conditions).

Member organisation services
Each member organisation of ILCA addresses the following barriers to the correct fit of assistive technology at a local level:

  • Limited access to assessment and clinical reasoning
  • Limited funding options
  • Extensive and potentially confusing range of choice
  • Lack of awareness of both high and low technology solutions and the appropriateness of combining these for individual need
