Assistive Devices Program

The physiotherapists at APR are trained and experienced in helping you select the most appropriate mobility devices to meet your needs. Our physiotherapists are authorized to apply for funding on your behalf to the Assistive Devices Program (ADP), which covers 75% of the cost of approved medical equipment in Ontario

Your physiotherapist will assess which piece of equipment would be most beneficial and take your measurements and adjust the equipment to ensure a good fit. Whether you need a walker or wheelchair, our physiotherapists will guide you, liaise with vendors, help you learn to use your new walker or wheelchair and advocate for you every step of the way.

Action Potential Rehabilitation can help you with Assistive Devices Program (ADP) mobility assessments, both adult and paediatric. Our experienced therapists will provide a thorough assessment of your needs, determine ADP funding eligibility, help select a suitable walker, wheelchair or scooter, ensure equipment is adjusted properly and review fall prevention strategies. All of our ADP authorizers have expertise in seating and wheelchair prescription, and our paediatric team members have extensive experience with prescribing paediatric mobility devices and standers. These appointments are covered in part by most extended health care plans.
