Assistive Technology is any item, piece of equipment, software,or product that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. I would love to know what most people are interested in learning about since there are so many types of AT. For example:
1. Independent living Aids, or Vision devices
2. Durable Medical Equipment - ex: wheelchairs, transfer benches, etc
3. Computer access for the disabled, Software programs
4. Transportation, and Vehical Modifications
5. Home Modifications
6. Recreational Devices
7. Augmentative Devices - Devices that talk for you - when you can't
Go back and vote several times. I'm really trying to get an idea of what information I should post first. I don't want to post topics that are of no interest to any one, so please vote multiple times. I'm surprised that no one has voted. I have so much information to post, but it takes alot of my time.
