Oklahoma AgrAbility produced a training video from the two-day course presented by Oklahoma AgrAbility staff to Doctor of Physical Therapy students at Langston University that focused on supporting farmers and ranchers during their rehabilitation process and the identification of appropriate assistive technology devices and work modifications. Students also participated in disability simulations for a more broad understanding of living with a disabling condition. View the video at www.ok.gov/agrability/LUPTvideo.html.
Oklahoma AgrAbility is pleased to announce the launch of their Assistive Technology Lending Library now available online.
