The suite features a wide range of cutting-edge technologies, including screen readers, eye gaze and mouth control systems – which allow individuals to operate a computer and communicate with the movement of their eyes or mouths, as well as accessible desks, keyboards, and computer mice adapted for a wide range of disabilities.
Momentum’s highly-trained staff will offer personal assessments for people with disabilities to identify the assistive technology solutions that can best fit their needs, as well as provide training on how to use the various technologies. Momentum’s Adapt and Assist programme is also available to employers to support them in making workstations accessible for people with disabilities in the workplace.
Garry Ryan, Momentum’s Assistive Technology Coordinator, said: 'For someone living with a disability, integrating into a work place, or learning in a classroom is often a challenge. But with the use of assistive technologies, many of these challenges can be overcome, and people with disabilities can become full participants in all facets of society.”
Councillor Paul Carey, Chair of Glasgow West Community Planning Partnership, said: “I am delighted that our board has been able to assist such an innovative service for people with a disability. The programme fills a clear and significant gap in service provision.”
