Is it fair for those mobile impaired people to pay more because of the advanced technology they require?
Not everyone is able to access this
technology, certain people that live in
urban cities will have a higher
chance of getting the assistive technology compared to people that live in rural areas.
Not all disabled people are able to use the assistive technology and people’s disabilities vary and so they need unique technology to suit their condition.
A device for people who are unable to
meet their needs and express their opinions using speech, gestures, or body language
A technology used by people who are unable to walk or find it difficult to walk
