You can return technical aids to Koivukylä and Myyrmäki technical aids supplies on weekdays from 8:00 to 16:00.

The Technical Aids Supply

  • evaluates the need for technical aids
  • finds the suitable technical aids for you
  • guides you with the correct use of technical aids
  • maintains and fixes technical aids (please call and make an appointment beforehand).

If you need an individual support device, you can make an appointment by calling the Physical Therapy phone service number 09 8392 2193 (Mon-Fri: 9:00–11:00). The Physical Therapy does not lend support devices, such as SI belts or back, neck, and upper limb supports, for acute injuries or trial use.
