what is assistive technology?

Assistive Technology explained

Assistive Technology (AT) is an umbrella term for any piece of equipment, software program or system that provides practical solutions to everyday life activities. We understand the need for people to live their potential regardless of their limitations. At LifeTec, we know that assistive technology can improve, increase and maintain the functional capabilities of people with complex needs.

Assistive technology may be classified as a device or system that provides people with practical solutions to everyday life activities. They promote greater independence and safety by enabling people to perform tasks that they had difficulty with or were unable to accomplish on their own.
