Sara Holjević is 8 years old, lives in Karlovac and has cerebral palsy. She can not walk or talk but communicate. Using a speech generating device mounted by REHAdapt Sara greatly improves communication with the environment, can clearly express her feelings, needs and desires, to learn, to answer questions and play games. This fall she is moving into the first grade of school and we believe that our mounting solution is a great help in learning and mastering the program, and the successful establishment of communication in the new environment
Rehadapt tries to support dedicated programs helping individuals with special communication needs as often as possible.
In the course of celebrating Saltillo Corporation’s jubilee – a manufacturer of communication devices in the AAC field for 20 years now – Rehadapt was honored to present an individual mounting solution for the jubilee winner Alex new communication device – customized and perfectly adapted through our unique Virtual Mounting Solution (VMS) service.
„At school we are excited to use the mount because no matter which classroom he is in the NovaChat can be in the right position for his visual and accessibility needs. It fits close to the chair so he can move around tight classrooms and he can even pull his chair up to the classroom tables.“
Boston Children’s Hospital
“We’ve LOVED having the flexibility of the RehAdapt rolling floor mount at bedside for our inpatient AAC service. The ability to use systems such as the Tobii i12 device pictured here (in a black case) in multiple positions at bedside with a very fast, easy and reliable position adjustment that conforms to the child’s varied positions in bed has been great!”
Director of the Augmentative Communication Program at Boston Children’s Hospital
„Adam, his family, teachers and therapists are so excited about his new communication device from Tobii Dynavox and the mounting arm from REHAdapt Engineering that will mean he can always have it with him wherever goes. Thank you to the teams at both of these remarkable companies that made this possible.“
One of the users of our mounts, 10 year old Julia Nickel, became a superstar after a video showcasing her and other Assistive Technology users gathered more than 1.5 million (!) views on Youtube.
When she met us at REHAdapt‘s booth at Rehacare, we serviced her mount. In the following panel discussion she gave insights into Alternative and Augmentative Communication to a general audience.
We are glad you stopped by, Julia!
Anne Sophie is happy with her Light 3D mount from Rehadapt. She told us it‘s not just practical but it‘s the only mount which is also looking cool.
Kennedy Films has announced that the London Screenwriters’ Festival has presented Simon Fitzmaurice, writer and director of My Name is Emily, with a lifetime achievement award.
Commenting on the award, Fitzmaurice said:
The London Screenwriters’ Festival was a real eye-opener for me. If you have ever been you will understand. I discovered a thriving screenwriter’s community and a festival that is more like a main-line injection of writing motivation. I literally came away buzzing with the will to write. I recommend it like any new addict, a little reluctantly to share. I was lucky enough to be honoured with The Fucking Awesome Award (how my children loved saying that over and over…) and the experience certainly lived up to the title.
We are glad to see our Rehadapt mount helping people to excel oneself. It is our dedication to create great products with passion to help people to live their passions as well.
