Access Information on Assistive Technology
The assistireland.ie website is provided by the Citizens Information Board to give information on assistive technology and products available for people with disabilities and older people from Irish suppliers. The Products Directory currently contains information on some 7,000 assistive technology products.
Information available on the site describes assistive technology and how it can be used to assist people with disabilities and older people in their daily living. Each section describes any legislation that may be relevant, funding options, and explores the application of assistive technologies in different daily living situations under the headings Communication, Education, Employment, Transport, In The Home, Health and Leisure.
There is also a range of Information Sheets which describe specific types of equipment in more detail, for example, showers and shower accessories, and things to consider when choosing equipment.
