There are many ways that technology and assistive devices can make it easier for people to live independently with a high quality of life.
Sponsored by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, this database includes objective assessments of over 22,000 devices with reviews by actual users. ABLEDATA does not manufacture or sell any of these products, thus there is no conflict of interest in their descriptions. You can search by product, by manufacturer, or by the condition the device addresses. There is even a "classified" section where consumers can buy/sell used equipment.
