About the RET Project

The Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (RET) Project at San Francisco State University is a non-profit program that has been providing technology solutions for people with disabilities and major injuries since 1990. 

We offer a full range of services, from initial evaluation through product recommendation, customization, set-up, training, and tech support. We serve the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California and are committed to delivering the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions.

We have a fully-equipped lab in San Francisco, a satellite office in the East Bay, and we'll gladly travel to your worksite, school, or home.

Contact Us to discuss your needs and learn more about
our services and competitive rates.

Note: We are not a reseller or vendor representative. This gives us the freedom to offer a wide range of options from an unbiased perspective. We routinely provide purchasing information from reputable vendors in our reports. If you are shopping for a particular device, we suggest that you seek out a vendor in your area or on the Internet.

Assistive Technology
We have in-depth knowledge and over 20 years of experience working with people with a wide range of disabilities identifying the most appropriate technologies to help them achieve their goals. We provide assessments and individualized solutions for temporary or permanent needs. (…more)

Office Ergonomics
Injuries and disabilities related to computer use are all too common. Getting the environment "just right" for the individual takes technical expertise, experience, and interpersonal skills. While there are many providers of basic ergonomics services, we specialize in helping with your more difficult cases. (…more)

Job Accommodations
It can be a challenge integrating an employee with non-standard technology or positioning needs into a workplace while maintaining productivity and respecting work rules.  We welcome complex situations and always consider the needs of both the employee and the employer in our recommendations.

Providing specialized tools or software without personalized training can be a waste of time and money. We offer personalized on-site and remote training in the use of speech recognition, text-to-speech, and many other types of programs. (…more)

Custom Design & Fabrication
Off-the-shelf products don't quite meet your needs?  —We can adapt or modify them. Nothing available on the market?  —We can design and fabricate what you need. (…more)

Technical Support Services
Technology that is broken is worse than no technology at all. We provide on-site technical support services to get you up and running quickly. (…more)

Who We Work For
We work with the California State Department of Rehabilitation and other public agencies, schools, businesses, insurance providers, and private individuals. (…more)
