Disability and Rehabilitation Engineering Research

Research and development is only meaningful if it gets into the hands of people who will use it to:

  • make better decisions,
  • improve available products,
  • implement better policies and
  • develop better programs and services.

We'd like to use these pages to increase awareness about completed research, research in progress and the areas where research is still needed.
