Centre for Enabling Environments and Assistive Technology

About Us

We draw upon the skills of a range of staff from York St John University, particularly the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences staff, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and design technology experts.

Their expertise includes a detailed knowledge of conditions and functional capability within dementia and other long-term conditions. We collaborate and share knowledge with partners including manufacturers, public, private and third sector service providers, the general public and students.

Through knowledge exchange projects and learning and teaching we aim to:

  • champion and promote person centred assessment and provision of services to support independent living
  • promote 'personalisation' agenda of choice, control, early intervention and prevention
  • promote person centred design of assistive technologies and environments
  • evaluate and disseminate best practice
