To improve independence and access for people with a disability using innovative Assistive Technology featured image

I travelled to Canada, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. My Fellowship aimed to improve independence and access for people with a disability using innovative Assistive Technology. The findings of my Fellowship recommend Australia:


  • Ensure participants in the NDIS are given access to impartial AT assessment, advice and opportunities, particularly for provision of custom AT when appropriate.
  • Increases Hospital-University collaboration efforts, in order to improve the quality of AT design and the general up-skilling of graduate health professionals, at the same time as increasing the quality and volume of AT provision to end users that such efforts can bring.
  • Increase the awareness around the needs of medical and Rehabilitation Engineering to foster education and employment opportunities, in order to improve Australia’s ability to contribute to global AT development.
