Assistive Technology and Self-Management

A significant section of our community have disabilities due to diseases, congenital, age or other factors, and require special healthcare assistance. They and people suffering in chronic diseases for years, are required to manage their healthcare at home or within their community. Targeted solution development is required in this area to make them as much independent as possible, without the need of visiting health centres on a regular basis which could be inconvenient and costly. Such patient-centric care can be found useful by other kind of population too.
