High Technology Aids for the Disabled presents some technical aids and microcomputers for the disabled. This technology could herald a major advance in improving the quality of life of many disabled people. Organized into four parts, this book begins with an assessment of disability. This book then presents a very wide variety of bioengineering approaches to replacement of function. Subsequent chapters explore the reduction of handicap using computer technology, following three main themes: microcomputer systems, user input controls, and speech training and recognition. The last part discusses the collaboration with user organizations in the development of technological aids. This book will be useful for disabled people in coping with their respective difficulties and for those people involved in helping disabled people maximize their human potential.
