Assistive Technology of the Month

Portable Telephone Amplifier

AT_july16We are featuring a different Assistive Technology device each month. This month we are highlighting a portable telephone amplifier.

The portable telephone amplifier plugs in to an existing corded phone and is compatible with digital and VOIP phones. It has adjustable amplification up to 40 decibels and separate adjustable tone control so that you can set it to your specific requirements. The portable telephone amplifier is easy to transport and install.

The portable telephone amplifier is on display in our St. Joseph office. If you have questions about these A.T. devices, contact Karen in our Kalamazoo Office (269-345-1516 x115) or Joanne in our St. Joseph office (269-982-7761)

Assistive Technology Funding Assistance is Available

The Assistive Technology Loan Fund (ATLF) is available to help people pay for tools for independence. The ATLF is a low interest loan available to people with disabilities and their family members to help purchase items like wheelchair-accessible vehicles, hearing aids, mobility devices, communication devices, or adapted recreation equipment. The ATLF can also pay for home modifications, including ramps, to make your home more accessible. Contact Lewis in our Kalamazoo office (269-345-1516 x107) for more information.
