Wake Forest Baptist Health's Assistive Technology Center is a partnership with the North Carolina Assistive Technology Program (NCATP) and is a demonstration center for assistive technology devices (AT). Assistive Technology or "AT" is any piece of equipment or device that a person with a disability uses to make every day living easier, to be more productive in the workplace or to be more independent. Therapists, consumers/patients, and family members can visit the center at CompRehab Plaza to look at devices, have them demonstrated, and try them out. Many of the devices can be loaned out for short periods of time to try out in the environment of choice. For more information:
