Ma'ayan is a unique evaluation and display center, providing parents and professionals with service and information about rehabilitation accessories. Ma'ayan is staffed by ALYN's occupational and physical therapists. They are specially trained in the fields of customized seating, use of adaptive equipment such as manual and powered wheelchairs, bathing aids and personalized adaptations of equipment.

Families bring their children to Ma'ayan to receive advice and recommendations for any equipment which could improve their child's quality of life and independence, both at home and in the community. The Ma'ayan staff evaluates and assesses the child's needs and the needs of the family. They then provide recommendations and information regarding the purchase of the most suitable equipment, including new products, on the market.

Ma'ayan staff members are often called upon to lecture, offer advice and present at conferences and other medical facilities around the country. Day seminars and conferences are organized by the Ma'ayan staff on subjects such as seating and mobility, technical aids (including computer accessories), wheelchair selection and the safe transportation of children with special needs. Ma'ayan staff members also conduct workshops demonstrating the use of various accessories which can be used in rehabilitation.
