From the Paper
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economics and Statistics Administration, there are some 48.9 million Americans with disabilities. Based on the 1990 U.S. Census, there are 13.2 million Americans requiring assistance in instrumental daily activities. Computer technology is bringing new hope to the disabled.
Safko International Inc. is a company which develops technology for the disabled, and president Lon Safko says that we are all only "temporarily ablebodied" and so will need some sort of assistance at some time in our lives. The company undertook ten years of research and development and sought input from more than 1,000 disabled individuals and rehabilitation centers to develop a system that allows the disabled a level of independence.
