Crutch Research in Government Report10th December 2010
Our research on instrumented crutches for rehabilitation has been featured in an annual government report on assistive technology. Our bit can be found on page 29 of the report (follow the link at the bottom of this news item).
Report on "Research and Development Work Relating to Assistive Technology"
The report is prepared by FAST (the Foundation of Assistive Technology), and is an annual publication by the Department of Health (UK Government). The report has a number of uses (including giving researchers an overview of other work in the field, and service providers information on new technologies and devices), but is also used by Government to highlight promising and successful areas of research that may require future funding.
The annual report is published pursuant to section 22 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, and describes the wide range of government funded projects supporting the development, introduction and evaluation of assistive technology that might increase the range of activities and independence or well being of disabled and older people.
