Assistive Technology

Text (c) GOV.UK

The phrase ‘assistive technology’ is often used to describe products or systems that support and assist individuals with disabilities, restricted mobility or other impairments to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. An assistive technology product can be classed either as a medical device, which needs a CE mark and is regulated by the applicable legislation or it can be an ‘aid for daily living’. It depends on the claims made by the manufacturer.
