Researching and Locating New Apps – This can be an overwhelming task! The Georgia Tools for Life Assistive Technology Program has created “Our Favorite Apps” database that promises to help make your app search much easier. This database is a unique tool that will allow you to search for apps by disability or multiple disabilities as well as by price ranges and device types. Every app housed in this database has been used and/ or tested by one or more members of the Tools for Life team along with many of our peers from across the country…Explore and learn more about Our Favorite Apps App finder.
The Explorer Mini is a medical device that looks like a toy, but has been designed to promote early exploration and self-initiated mobility for children with mobility impairments. It has been rigorously tested and gone through regulatory approval to be considered a medical device.
The Explorer Mini is not intended to be a child’s full-time device. It is a tool allowing self-initiated mobility and freedom of movement which can help improve trunk and head control, and functional use of the upper extremities. It is not designed simply to get a very young child from point A to point B but is intended to allow them to explore their environment while in an upright posture that helps support milestone achievement. Each component of the Explorer Mini is intentionally designed to address areas of childhood development and is meant to be utilized as early as 12 months of age.
