Handicap Assistance Devices


Handicap assistance devices are the helping tools that enable a handicap person to cope with the world independently. They allow individuals to overcome the obstacles on their own, promote self-reliance and self-esteem.

These devices are well-designed, and high quality assistive devices for disabled persons to encourage independent living by making life easier and safer. These devices should not only be helpful in functioning but be affordable as well.

The American Disability Association (ADA), declared a number of devices that are helpful for the people having disabilities like hearing disabilities, learning disabilities, mental disabilities, visual disabilities and other physical disabilities based on the aspect of the injury or inability. The adapted equipment help the disabled person to perform activities which they find difficult otherwise.

Some handicap products include-

A) Bathroom/ shower and toilet aids.
B) Bedroom comfort and safety.
C) Dressing and grooming aids.
D) Low vision aids.
E) Eating and drinking aids.
F) Walkers, canes, and accessories.
G) Wheel chairs.
H) Moving equipment in the garden or lawns.

The handicap assistance devices must meet the standards of the products made mandatory by the Disability Rights Commission. They must be easy to use and should be very comfortable. The assistive technology is a boon as it provides easy solutions for the problems arising due to disability.

These devices help to perform those activities smoothly without any trouble or problem and they make them feel at ease. They become self dependent and feel pride in doing the acts that they previously needed somebody's assistance for.
