    The Illustrated Guide to Assistive Technology and Devices
    Tools and Gadgets for Living Independently
    This book is an illustrated guide to assistive technologies and devices (AT/AD). It chronicles the use of AT/AD - technology used by individuals with disabilities to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. In general, AT can include mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs, as well as hardware, software, and peripherals that assist people with disabilities in accessing computers or other information technologies. Advanced AT has coincided with the advent of personal electronic devices that could be customized for use, such as computers and smart phones. For people with disabilities, AT includes simple gadgets for the home and office, electronic gadgets and complex computer systems for the workplace, mobility aids and accessible vans for getting around and modified equipment for lifestyle needs, such as talking ATMs and strobe light alarm systems. This book empowers people with disabilities to use assistive technologies to overcome some of their physical or mental limitations and have a more equal playing field. It includes real-life examples about how people with disabilities are using assistive technology (AT) to assist them in daily tasks, and discusses emotional issues related to AT/AD.
