AT Chat is dedicated to producing the most useful, relevant and up to date peer-led AT information resources. Therefore we are collaborating with disability organisations, peaks and businesses across Australia to co-design and co-produce AT information resources called Collabs. These unique resources are specifically curated to help increase our partner's community's knowledge of AT solutions and options.
VisAbility is proud to collaborate with AT Chat on the Staying Physically Healthy article and to highlight the benefits of exercise physiology and how assistive technology can help. We have a team of highly qualified and enthusiastic exercise physiologists, delivering personalised fitness programs to optimise your health.
