All sorts of conditions determine our everyday behavior, and fix us in time and space. They seem to leave us very little room to maneuver. For instance, given time we will age. Fortunately all kind of assistive technologies can help us to cope with the conditions that inherently accompany aging.
Assistive technologies compensate adverse effects
Most of the assistive technologies compensate for the adverse effects of conditions that determine our everyday live:
- Our innate physical limitations, such as aging;
- Shortcomings and risks associated with our physical, social and political environment;
- Laws and rules;
- Macro-economic developments that determine our financial status;
- And technological possibilities.
