Abstract:

The availability of assistive technology (AT) for many people is to remain healthy, independent and productive. It is also a pre-condition for inclusion and equal participation of people with disabilities in the society. The need for AT is on the increase due to a growing prevalence of disability, the rise in non-communicable and musculoskeletal conditions and increase in injuries for example from road traffic crashes, violence and falls and above all, the emerging ageing population.
