The objective of the Assistive Devices Program (ADP) is to provide consumer centered support and funding to Ontario residents who have long-term physical disabilities and to provide access to personalized assistive devices appropriate for the individual’s basic needs.
Devices covered by the program are intended to enable people with physical disabilities to increase their independence through access to these assistive devices responsive to their individual needs. The ADP will pay 75% of the ADP price towards the purchase of certain mobility and positioning devices (seating) for people who have a chronic physical disability and who meet all the applicable eligibility criteria.
All manual and power wheelchairs/bases, power scooters, power add-on devices for manual wheelchairs, strollers, wheeled walkers, paediatric walking frames and dynamic positioning devices must undergo a technical and clinical evaluation at a designated testing centre prior to inclusion in the Program. All products must meet the federal (for instance, Medical Device Establishment Licence – MDEL) and provincial regulations where applicable.
In order to list devices with the Program the manufacturers/distributor responsible for the product in the Canadian market has to submit the ADP application form. The ADP application, when complete will confirm that the manufacturer/distributor has a minimum of $2 million liability insurance for the product in question, warranties the product for a minimum of 24 months and proves that the product meets flammability requirements (CAL 117 or equivalent).
