SALEM, OR, USA, September 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Oregon’s Statewide Assistive Technology Program, Access Technologies, Inc. (ATI), lending library of tools, devices, and assistive technology services for persons with physical or neurological impairments, is expanding in a small way.

The latest addition to the device demonstration is the Toothbrush Pillow, a small countertop HSA & FSA medical device that balances a toothbrush in the horizontal position with bristles up to aid and assist physically or neurologically impaired individuals in applying toothpaste. Like all the numerous devices and services available from Access Technologies, Inc., the Toothbrush Pillow can be tried by the user before committing to its use.

Access Technologies, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to assure that persons with disabilities in Oregon will be able to secure and effectively use assistive technologies. As a full-service assistive technology provider, our team of Certified Assistive Technology Specialists have over 40 years of combined experience providing AT trainings, evaluations, and ergonomic assessments.

Oregon’s Statewide Assistive Technology Program was established in 1990, and is a part of a national network of technology-related assistance programs to increase access to assistive technology (AT) devices and services for individuals with disabilities and their families, and to facilitate the development of a consumer-responsive AT service delivery system. Program staff work with consumers, service providers, state agencies, private industry, legislators, and other interested individuals to facilitate the development of a statewide system to provide AT services.

Oregon’s Statewide Assistive Technology Program now has the Toothbrush Pillow thru the AT Demonstrations programs. This opportunity is for a person to interact with an AT device, learn about the different features and compare with other similar devices. An AT Device Demo allows a person to make an informed decision about whether the device is the right one.

According to CDC.gov 3 percent of Oregon adults have a self-care disability, 11 percent with mobility disability, and 6 percent have an independent living disability. Independent living is described as serious difficulty doing errands alone, such as visiting a doctor's office and self-care is difficulty dressing or bathing.

Funding for Oregon’s Statewide Assistive Technology Program is available through a government-sponsored program called Assistive Technology Act Programs (ATAP), administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. HHS works through various state agencies that work closely with individual users impacted by disabling conditions.

The Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATiA) defines Assistive technology (AT) is any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of persons with disabilities.

The small Toothbrush Pillow, like thousands of other devices designed to assist disabled and elderly, is available at 41 out of 56 assistive technology locations throughout all 50 states, four US territories, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
