Assistive Devices for People With Disabilities - Topic Overview
Assistive devices are tools that help you hold objects, open and
close doors, transfer weight while shifting positions, or walk. They assist you
by making certain daily activities easier to do.
Assistive devices can help you with daily activities such as bathing,
grooming, dressing, walking or otherwise being mobile, writing, or eating.
These devices can be simple, such as special hooks to help you button a shirt,
or elaborate, such as an electric wheelchair or a computer that can be
controlled by a mouth switch if you are unable to use your limbs.
