Assistive Technology (AT) already makes a huge difference to the lives of disabled people. It helps them live more independently and enables many to work. But it has vast untapped potential. Advances in technology mean AT is developing and improving rapidly. It could have a transformative impact on the disability employment gap and is, in turn, a huge opportunity to boost productivity. These possibilities will only be realised if employers, government and disabled people themselves fully understand and exploit its life-changing capacities.
