Aging Well: Assistive technology helps seniors and people with disabilities – KITV Honolulu

She came to Assistive Technology Resource Centers of Hawaii, or ATRC, for help. It opened in 1991, and its mission is “making sure individuals with disabilities, and also people who are aging, becoming senior citizens, have access to technology that will allow them to do the things they want to do,” says executive director Barbara Fischlowitz-Leong.

The technology also extends to personal care. For example, these stabilizing utensils are for people whose hands shake, sometimes caused by arthritis or Parkinson’s Disease.
