Technology Transfer of Assistive and Accessible Information and Communication Technology Systems
Technology transfer refers to the process of taking a device, system or service from laboratory prototype to being generally available with the appropriate support available to the consumers. This has long been an area of significant concern since relatively few novel products or services for people with disabilities successfully transfer into being affordable by people with disabilities. The area of assistive technology is different from that of accessible mainstream infomration and communication technology systems, but there are some common problems.
The Cardiac project organised a workshop in 2011 to develop a roadmap for this area. The reports below give the details.
