What is Assistive Technology?
Assistive technology is anything designed to maintain and/or improve daily living for individuals with disabilities. This may include, but is not limited to, electronics, software, equipment, speech generating devices, environmental control units and mobility aids.
One of the most underserved communities is individual with quadriplegias. While there seems to be plentiful resources for paraplegics and individuals with varying degrees of paralysis or disability, individual with quadriplegia supplies, tools for individual with quadriplegias and communication devices for individual with quadriplegias can sometimes be difficult to identify and locate.
