Assistive Technology

It's not rocket science, but it does take engineering.

Tucked away in a low-lit lair in the heart of our RSC building is a team of dedicated professionals who create, innovate, problem-solve, and invent, all to offer assistive and adaptive solutions that help the people we support achieve a level of independence they may never have thought possible.

Communication devices and applications allows people to interact with the world, adaptive dinnerware allows them to feed themselves, and other adaptations make employment possible. Technology, in particular, has the potential to impact virtually all areas of their lives — from independent living arrangements to successful employment to building relationships.

Items are custom-built to suit each individual’s needs. Courtesy of a high-resolution 3D printer from B9Creations in Rapid City, the Assistive Technology Team is able to build prototypes, test theories, and even deploy full-scale AT items.
