Website:Bruyere Continuing Care

Since 1995, I’ve been working as a Computer Support Specialist for Occupational Therapy and an Assistive Technologist at Bruyere Continuing Care in Ottawa. I have supported and helped various patients admitted to our complex continuing care and rehabilitation programs to gain access to technology and independence. I’ve been developing in collaboration with highly skill programmers and students an open source and low cost assistive devices for AAC (augmentative and alternative communication), and ECU (environmental control unit) for people with disabilities to allow for better access to mainstream technology like smartphones, tablets and smart devices.
