The extensive range of adaptive switches, control devices and mounting solutions at Smile Smart Technology enable users to complete a wide range of daily tasks with ease.

Setting targets is a great way to move towards a new skill and help remind you to take time to have fun in your powerchair.
To maintain a user’s progress and the momentum of training and development, powerchairs must be regularly serviced and cared for to keep the daily fun going strong.
Tailored service plans are an important part of an individual’s future with their powerchair. We provide service, support and development programmes so that you can be kept moving, communicating and in control of your costs long into the future.

3. Practice Steadily
Bumpers and anti-collision sensors allow steady development and practice.
4. Independent action
Independent decisions and actions can be made with continued peace of mind.
5. Personal Autonomy

Personal Drive Prescription
Combining all the available elements of the Smile Smart System, our team are able to go that step further by creating unique mounting, switching, controls and accessory formations.
The extensive range of adaptive switches, control devices and mounting solutions at Smile Smart Technology enable users to complete a wide range of daily tasks with ease.
Many of the switches and control solutions have been developed in-house by Smile Smart Technology. Our holistic approach to mounting along with a commitment to good aesthetics help us provide user-friendly solutions, all based on the feedback from users and support teams.
The flexibility and safety of the SSS enables Smile Smart Technology alongside accredited professionals to prescribe for individual user needs.
More advanced switch and control elements can be combined than on standard powerchairs as there is the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them in safety.
We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to try to be as independent as they can be.
The SSS provides that independence through key system safety elements, promoting a sense of personal security whilst also preventing damage to the powerchair and enabling fun!
