Services - AMITEC

Based on information received from the referral rehabilitation team, professionals working in this area of service conduct very thorough assessments. Once the most appropriate access mode is determined, clinicians proceed with a user feasibility test on the complex access mode system that will integrate all the assistive aids. They must:

  • Identify the number of devices and accessories that will be used;
  • Ensure their compatibility;
  • Plan how the system will be mounted (wiring, autonomy level of each assistive aid, etc.);

Once this information is gathered, a funding application is completed according to the funding agency’s requirements.

Upon receiving the equipment, and depending on the case, professionals working in the Integration of Access Mode Systems will:

  • Install and program the system;
  • Introduce the system to the user;
  • Train the user on the use and maintenance of the system and inform the user about alternative solutions in case of system failure;
  • At any time, the team may also provide support to users living in other regions.

Attributing complex access mode systems and environmental controls requires clinical and technical knowledge about technological solutions that are available on the market; local, provincial, national and international distributors; different funding sources; and current attribution and funding policies of the RAMQ and other agencies.
