Assistive Labs is rethinking how we design technology for people living with disabilities in global communities. Education and health services in developing countries need support in creating affordable and sustainable technology for those with communication, cognitive and learning disabilities. These groups are often overlooked, restricting availability of important services. Existing hardware solutions focus mainly on mobility (wheelchairs and prosthetics), or vision and hearing issues. We are designing and distributing adaptable, cognitively focused products to underrepresented communities who need it most.
We partner with communities and local nonprofits to ideate and co-design devices for people living with disabilities in low-to-middle income countries.
Technology for all
By creating low-cost, open-source devices, we hope to establish a platform to empower those who need it most.
From 'Makers' to assistive technology networks, we believe in the transformative power of intersecting expertise for the greater good.
