Tony Barber

Assistive Technology Consultant

Tony Barber

Tony came to GTK after 20 years of experience as a telecommunication technician with Telstra- quite a different type of work in many ways. However his many years of practice working with telecommunications and clients has served him well in his new role with Tony possessing a natural ability to problem solve and working out solutions.

Tony says he loves the challenges that are thrown at him and enjoys working with the client and their prescribing therapist to identify the best solution for the person. He particularly likes working with power wheelchairs and feels that the future holds no boundaries with exciting technological advancements possible in the future, perhaps allowing people to control their power wheelchairs via eye gaze or thought control.

When he’s not working, you’ll often find Tony surfing at his local beaches and soaking up the great outdoors.
