Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jun 14, 2013

Show Notes  

Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.

Gerontechnology may be a new word for some of us.  It refers to the integration of technology for  health, housing, mobility, communication, leisure and work of older people.  As people age, the utilization of technology to maintain and regain independence is critical.  

The Massachusetts of Institute of Technology even has an "Age Lab" that focuses on the development and deployment of technology to assist as people age in the areas of: Safe Driving & Lifelong Transportation, Disaster Preparedness, Eldercare & Caregiving, and even Retirement Planning

For more information, to read our blog or to drop us a line, visit That was your accessibility minute for this week. I’m Wade Wingler with the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads, in Indiana.
