For over 25 years our NHS Occupational Therapy team has been helping people in Devon find equipment solutions to stay active and independent. You can call, email or visit our equipment demonstration centre and spend time with our Occupational Therapy team to find the right equipment. We are not a shop, we won’t try to sell you anything, which is why you can trust us to guide you through the solutions to suit you.

Our website is an introduction to our service in Devon.

Go to ‘Equipment Advice’ to find out about gadgets and technology for independence.

See the ‘Before you Buy Guides’ for guidance when you are buying equipment, and see the ‘Local suppliers’ page for lists of Devon retailers who sell equipment.

Devon staff can find out about training and resources on ‘Devon professionals’ page.

On our ‘News’ page you can read our equipment reviews of the latest innovations and find out about new Apps and technology to keep you connected.
