Our Tech Lab team is up-to-date on the latest software and technology on the market so we can better assist our patients to be safe and independent. Our team is made up of specially trained occupational and speech therapists who provide hands-on education and training about technological resources for patients, their families, and others in the community. The goal is to equip our patients to communicate with family and friends, increase their independence to control their environment, and achieve their work/school goals.

Extensive Technology Collection

Craig Hospital patients have the opportunity to use the equipment in our extensive collection, so they know what works best for them and how to use it by the time they return home.

Our loan bank includes voice recognition software, computers on wheels, adaptive mouse devices, microphones, keyboards. We have a variety of mounts, Bluetooth ear pieces and various ways of controlling the environment (such as turning on/off TV and lights).

The occupational therapists and speech language pathologists continually strive to increase their knowledge by collaborating with local universities and engineers, attending conferences, and learning from our patients. Our team is privileged to partner with students from the Colorado School of Mines and the University of Denver to develop projects that can increase the quality of life for those with brain and spinal cord injury.
