Low-Tech Assistive Technology at Home and Abroad (AgrAbility National Training Workshop)


Tuesday, May 11, 2021
1:00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

National AgrAbility Project

Description:

Low-tech assistive technology is readily available, requires little training to use, and has minimal cost to construct. Complex assistive technology has been developed for almost every task in our high-tech world of electronics and computer aided design, but it is often inaccessible because of high cost and fragile parts or scarce materials. Low-tech assistive technology enables people with disabilities to move about, grip tools, and decrease back pain. This technology can be constructed from local materials worldwide by resident craftsmen. Farm workers in developing countries can use this low-tech AT to produce food for themselves and their families.
