Working Toward the Future

The ATIA Research Committee of leading investigators from universities and manufacturers works to advance assistive technology (AT) at the consumer, industry, and policy levels by conducting and communicating about evidence-based research.

  • Increase the effectiveness of products and services by promoting the use of scientifically based evidence in the development and delivery of assistive technology solutions
  • Boost the credibility of the industry by building the collective knowledge of company leaders with assistive technology stakeholders
  • Influence policy in areas related to research (SBIR and other research grant opportunities, Medicare and related funding sources)
