Who can get assistive devices?

You can apply for an assistive device if you have a permanent physical or mental disability.

There are two types of assistive devices:

  • 1) Personal assistive devices, which you carry on your body and which are adjusted to your personal needs (including disposable devices). This includes wigs, hearing devices, arch supports, surgical shoes, compression socks, diabetes devices, diapers, urine bags, ostomy care products, prostheses (excluding dentures) and bandages.
  • 2) Technical assistive devices, which you borrow from the City of Copenhagen assistive devices centre. This includes walkers, wheel chairs, beds, lifts, alarm systems, pillows, duvets, tricycles, toilet and bath chairs and low vision devices.

The City of Copenhagen can also help you prepare your home for your disability, including fitting handles in the bathroom and removing door steps.
