- 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,

- 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!
