About Personalised Technology

We use technology to change lives

Hft is one of the UK leaders in the use of Personalised Technology (PT). We have a wealth of experience in offering Personalised Technology services to support learning disabled people and those with complex needs to increase your independence, safety, privacy, choice and control.

From specialist technology-enabled care systems to safer bath-plugs, technology can enhance your life – but only where it supports your unique desires and needs. At Hft we conduct holistic person-centred assessments with you, working with you and your families and support staff to find creative ways for technology to improve your lives, both now and in the future.

What is personalised technology?

There are different terms used to describe personalised technology, such as assistive technology or technology-enabled care. At Hft we define personalised technology as any device or equipment that can enable you to live as independently and safely as possible.

Our approach to Personalised Technology means we focus on your abilities and what you want to achieve first, before then exploring whether technology could help. We call it Personalised Technology because the solution is tailored to you and your needs – putting you at the centre.

In other words, it’s not about the technology itself; it’s about you and how we can help you to live your life, you way in a manner that really counts.
