In today’s world, technology isn’t just about convenience or entertainment; it’s about empowerment. Nowhere is this more evident than in the realm of assistive technology (AT). From aiding communication to enhancing mobility, AT has transformed the lives of millions of people with disabilities, opening doors to independence, inclusion, and opportunity.

The Global Need for Assistive Technology

The demand for assistive devices is rising, driven by an ageing global population and a surge in noncommunicable diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2050, a staggering 3.5 billion people will require AT to support their health and well-being.

Currently, the need for assistive products is substantial, with over 2.5 billion people globally relying on one or more assistive devices. However, despite this demand, many individuals still lack access to the AT solutions they require, highlighting the urgent need for action and intervention.
