Prosthetic devices can be very expensive. Although the Institute of Biomedical Engineering is not in a position to provide funding, the staff can assist clients in seeking financial support.
Many provinces in Canada provide partial funding for prosthetic rehabilitation. People who have been to our clinic have received funding from the following agencies:
- CHAMP Program and Adult Amputee Program of The War Amps
- Workplace insurance; private health insurance
- Accident insurance benefits
- Community service groups
Please contact us for more information about funding.
