Module 3.4: Road towards making India a leader in Assistive Technology
India has a large population of Persons with Disabilities in the world. India is also home to the largest youth population in the world. By creating awareness about the problems faced by PwDs and inspiring youngsters to solve these problems, we can strengthen the AT ecosystem.
The goal will be to develop the assistive technology solutions desired by PwDs and then aim to make sure that everyone who needs them has access to them. In ensuring that R&D and commercialization takes place, increasing production can close the gap in the needs.
Check out this short talk by Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala on his vision for IITMRP’s 10X initiative of making India a leader in the world in the domain of Assistive Technology.
