Introduction

Assistive technology refers to any product that helps maintain or improve an individual's quality of life. Every person who requires assistive technology has unique needs; there is no one-size fits all product. Because of the different user requirements and the range of products available, the provision of assistive technology can be a complicated process. The World Health Organization (WHO) has detailed four key steps in assistive technology provision. Following these steps helps to ensure the user is safe and gets the most benefit from their device. This course will walk you through these four stages.
