Find AT: Technology for People with Spinal Cord Injuries

If an individual can voluntarily move even a single muscle, he/she can access the world through technology. This would generally be possible with the use of a single switch although the more physical ability an individual has, the more possibilities exist.

An individual with a spinal cord injury can turn on the TV and surf the channels. He can control the household environment (lights, heat, etc.). He can dial the telephone and have a conversation with others. He can open and close the doors to his apartment/house. He can request assistance from an attendant.

He can surf the net using a computer. He can type a book using a computer, single switch, and software. All of these require high technology, but the possibilities are endless.

A web site that focuses on people with spinal cord injuries, includes information on SCI, Assistive Technology, funding and links to other sites is www.interactplus.com/oyw_sci.htm.
