What is an Assistive Technology?
Assistive technologies come in many shapes, sizes and levels of intricacy, from reading glasses to technologically advanced wheelchairs and from hearing aides to state-of-the-art electrical muscle stimulators. These technologies help people with disabilities live more independent and productive lives, and rehabilitation technologies aid in the rehabilitation process of individuals who have suffered strokes or injuries, undergone surgery or were born with a debilitating disease.
