Accessing Equipment

Having trouble accessing equipment?

Equipment can be the bridge to a more independent and fulfilling life with a disability. Mobility devices, modifications, and adaptive technologies enable those with mobility challenges to accomplish both extraordinary feats and everyday tasks.

More importantly the right equipment can keep you safe, healthy and able to live with more independence.

We can help.

At SCIO, our Service Navigation team is dedicated to empowering individuals by facilitating access to essential equipment and financial resources. Our coordinators are here to guide you through the process, ensuring you find the mobility devices and adaptive technologies that enhance your independence and safety.

Beyond providing direct support, we’re committed to advocating for broader access to these crucial tools, aiming to transform the landscape of mobility disability support for the better.

Living with a mobility disability

A comprehensive resource designed to support individuals living with spinal cord injuries.


The premier destination for everyone looking to grow their knowledge, empathy and understanding of living and working with a mobility disability.

Finding equipment

Finding the right equipment at the right price or the right features can be a challenge. We look for resources and options for our clients and provide information on where you can look for yourself. To buy, sell and donate equipment in Ontario we have created a couple of platforms; SCIO Marketplace on Facebook and we created the Possibilities Project Plus in partnership with Lawson Health Research Institute. The SCIO Business Directory lists businesses that offer products and services relevant to those with spinal cord injury and other physical disabilities.
