What Does Tetra Do?
At Tetra, our focus is to find solutions to overcome environmental barriers faced by people with disabilities. While these environmental barriers are still a part of the journey, we believe Tetra solutions help foster greater independence, quality of life, and inclusion.
Clients range in age, medical conditions and needs and the breadth of gadgets span from the work place, at-home modifications, to sport and leisure as well.
Tetra recruits volunteers who work with clients to design and build assistive devices that are custom-made for the individual – these are devices that are often not available commercially or cost prohibitive. Clients range in age, medical conditions and needs and the breadth of gadgets span from the work place, at-home modifications, and for sport and leisure as well. As a non-profit organization, Tetra raises funds to deliver this program, including covering the costs of volunteer travel and materials for devices up to $500 per project.
Ultimately, we envision a world where people with physical disabilities feel empowered and inspired to re-imagine what’s possible. This is achieved by doing things – accessing opportunities.
