Southern Africa AT Database
This Assistive Technology (AT) Database is one key component of the Assistive Technology Information Mapping Project (AT-Info-Map). The AT-Info-Map is funded by the Google Impact Challenge to make the world more accessible for persons with disabilities by increasing access to assistive technologies. AT includes a wide range of technology products that are used to support persons with disabilities as they work, learn, play and live in their communities. Some examples of AT include: crutches, wheelchairs, ramps, hearing aids, Braille printers, adaptive software, communication devices, just to mention a few. This project serves to map the current availability of different types of AT in ten countries in Southern Africa, and works with local disability organizations to address gaps in AT availability.
