"Assistive technology" is the key to helping people with disabilities make use of their abilities. An "assistive technology device" is any item or piece of equipment used to maintain or improve the functional capabilities of a person with a disability. Assistive technology primarily includes canes, walkers, wheelchairs, scooters and powerchairs.
