The credit for the development and the revolution of technology can be drawn back to the eighteenth century industrial revolution. However, technology and its development was mainly aimed to make the day to day activities of man easy. Technological investments time to time ensured that man needs not strain himself to get his work done. However, the biggest achievement in technology can be seen when there came inventions for people with special needs.
Who are people with special needs?
People with special needs or differently able people are those who lack some physical part of their body or has less development of their mental thinking due to unfortunate accidents or due to natural causes like viruses, cancers, and various other medicinal causes. They are therefore unable to perform their day to day activities easily and commonly as other humans. Therefore, they would require an assistance to help them to carry on with their work. These people with different needs might be suffering from, hearing, clear vision, communicating, or any other disorder, modern technological devices thereby, help their impairments enhance and live a fair life.
Assistive devices for people with visual impairment.
The biggest difficulty that a person with visual impairment would face is, not being able to reach where he or she wishes to go. They are not able to see where they are and this might most of the time make them loose their track to their homes or schools. However, at present there are some great tracking devices that work through a Bluetooth or GPRS system. All what the family needs to do is install a car gps tracker to your car and install a find friends tracker, or a wolf tracker system to any of the possessions such as the bag, walking stick, watch or jewellery that the visually impaired person always wears. If they lose track to their homes, their families can find them within minutes using these trackers.
Assistive devices for people with hearing impairment and moving disorders.
People who are unable to move do not have to be imprisoned at home anymore. There are modern technological devices, such as the electronic wheelchairs that make people with disorders move from one place to another without human assistance. They have developed these wheelchairs in such a way that it monitors the heartbeat, pressure level and other changes in the person’s body. This way they keep track of the person always. This is to avoid any danger to the person such as a sudden seizure. Technology has developed massively to improve people with hearing disorders. They have invented a modern hearing aid that connects to our systems that triggers our brain of external sound waves. People who suffered due to hearing impairments do not have to worry about it anymore due to these developed technologies.
