Internet of Things has the potential to become an enabler for Assistive Electronics devices by increasing accessibility support and services for people with disabilities. Assistive Electronics devices have had a positive impact on domains such as healthcare, education, independent and assisted living, mobility and navigation in public spaces among others. Assistive Electronics devices help differently-abled people, who have difficulty speaking, typing, writing, seeing, hearing among others. Assistive Electronic Devices aims at easing the connectivity and communication for individuals with sensory, physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments and disabilities to enable them to fully participate in society.
Assistive Electronics and Devices
Assistive Electronics or Assistive Technology is a term for assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and the elderly.
