Find out where to source equipment and what you need to consider when sourcing it.
Our website is an extension of our service providing a wide range of relevant advice, information and printable resources, to help you to make the right equipment choices.
The Equipment advice section has lots of information about gadgets, technology and equipment for independence. There are also some helpful Taking Care guides in this section.
See our Before you buy guides for advice and guidance when buying specific equipment.
The Devon suppliers page has lists of specialist mobility shops around Devon.
Devon County Council asked us to help to create a self-assessment tool for Devon residents to identify equipment to help at home. Most sections of the assessment process will lead back to the information on our Independent Living Centre website. Please do email or phone our Therapy team for individual advice and information or to arrange an appointment to try the equipment for yourself.Take self assessment
