Compass Assistive and Rehabilitation Technology Service
What we do
Compass is our Assistive & Rehabilitation Technology Service at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN).
Assistive technology enables people with disabilities to carry out everyday tasks they would otherwise be unable to do, such as:
- Using a computer
- Driving powered wheelchair
- Controlling the environment e.g. turning lights on and off
Rehabilitation technology can be used to help people who have suffered injury or damage to their nervous system, to regain skills and meet their treatment goals by offering alternative, often fun, activities.
