Increased Independence for Children and Young Adults with Limited Arm and Hand Movement
This post has been written by Simon Fielden, Director at Rahana Life
Rahana Life is a new company dedicated to bringing the very best assistive technology to the UK, with a focus on equipment to increase the independence of children and young adults who have limited arm and hand function. It is crucial the technology is matched to the needs of the user and Rahana Life places as much importance on effective assessment as it places on excellent technology and the support that goes with it.
Rahana is a Sanskrit word that means live; we want to provide assistive technology that allows people to achieve their goals and be as independent as they can be and live life! Rahana Life!
