From Disability-Conscious Cookware to Inclusive Dating Apps

 - Oct 24, 2017
These assistive technology innovations range from disability-conscious cookware to inclusive dating apps like 'Glimmer' -- a platform that provides users with a safe space to disclose their disability while connecting with like-minded individuals.

When it comes to innovations in the world of mobility, securely balanced wheelchairs and rehabilitative adult e-tricycles are changing the way those with physical limitations experience movement. While examples like the 'Scewo' wheelchair make the process of climbing stairs or elevating to grab hard-to-reach objects an easy feat for users, the 'CERO E-Tricycle' is designed for those suffering from spinal injuries and other similar conditions. In addition to helping with mobility, the three-wheeler also allows riders to work out their legs, despite of limitations with movement.

Additionally, autism-specific smart glasses, automated home decor accessories, and braille art exhibits help make the lives of users easier by relying on hands-free and voice-activated technology to work.
