The Assistive Technology Service provides environmental control systems on loan that help to maintain and improve the independence and security of people with severe physical disability who have very limited upper limb and hand function.  The ability to control everyday equipment such as the phone, TV and lighting is provided via a central control unit and a single switch. It can also be used to control access into their home and summon emergency help.  Access to computer functions can be considered if you are eligible for the service.
