What is Assistive Technology?

  • Assistive or Adaptive Technology (AT) commonly refers to products, devices or equipment, whether acquired commercially, modified or customized, that are used to maintain, increase or improve the functional capacities of individuals with disabilities.

  • Assistive Technology products can assist people with disabilities with daily living tasks, communication, education, work, and recreation, and help them achieve independence or improve the quality of their life. For example, Assistive Technology devices can help prevent the worsening of a condition, help improve physical functioning, strengthen a physical or other weakness, help improve a person's capacity to learn, or replace a missing limb.

  • Assistive Technology services support people with disabilities or their caregivers to help them select, acquire, or use adaptive devices. Such services also include functional evaluations, training on or demonstration of devices, and purchasing or leasing devices.
