Heat is blazing, and so is UATP!

   Even though the summer heat is blazing, UATP has been busy! Here are some highlights from July:
  • CReATE (Citizen’s Reutilizing Assistive Technology Equipment) transferred 11 refurbished mobility devices to Utahans with disabilities in the month of July.
    CReATE technician, Tom Boman,
    works on refurbishing a wheelchair.

  • The Utah Assistive Technology Foundation approved 9 loans for the month of July for Utahans with disabilities to purchase assistive technology.

  • The Assistive Technology Lab has been working on a special project: an adapted saddle for Mike, a 13-year-old boy with Cerebral Palsy. Mike has bonded with his step-mother’s horse, and it helps him use muscles in new ways. It has proved to be a good source of therapy for him, both physically and mentally.  The Lab will build a back onto the saddle to support Mike and hold in place. Watch for more on this story!
