Survey about assistive technologies for disabled people

This survey is your opportunity to provide feedback for a research study on the value of assistive technologies

The research, being conducted on behalf of the Disabled People’s Organisations, ACC, and other government agencies, will examine how assistive technology makes a difference to the lives of disabled people; which technologies are being used, and what disabled people think of current government funding.

Assistive technologies are products and related services that help people take part in everyday activities. They can be specifically designed for people with cognitive, sensory and/or physical impairments, or everyday technology that has been  modified.  Examples range from hearing aids, to smartphone apps that assist with communication, to power wheelchairs.

The results of the study will contribute to strengthening and updating the Disability Action Plan 2014-2018.
