Wheelchairs: The Trend from Functionality to Individuality
Wheelchairs have been around for hundreds of years, but early wheelchairs were intended only to help a disabled individual move from point A to point B. As society progressed and disabled individuals became more integrated, the role of the wheelchair began to change as well. Wheelchairs are now considered not only a means of transportation but also as a way to allow users to express their individuality. Users can find custom-made high quality ultra-light high-performance wheelchairs as well as accessories that enable them to individualize their look and style.
Do we need wheelchair customization and why? What are the benefits? Do you use a customized wheelchair? Is the wheelchair only about function or can it also express style?Let us know your thoughts! The full text of the article is here

Assistive technology doesnt have to be high-tech, but it should serve the purpose of assistance and can include anything from a stick one uses to reach for something to a walker or a wheelchair, or more complex items such as environmental controls or adapted vehicles.

What is the future of assistive technology? What assistive technology do you use or would like to use? Do you like it or do you think it needs to be improved and why?
