Finding the right product to solve an accessibility problem can be a challenge. Below are listings of products our RAD Renovations professionals have found to be useful in their work.
The links below link to common retailers in Alberta, but you may consider connecting directly to local vendors or to the manufacturer. Discuss with your occupational therapist if the product is suitable for you and with your contractor to see if it will work in your space. Check with the professionals you’re working with to ensure this product meets your needs and situation. Doing these checks will help avoid problems down the line.
