About Physical Disability

For children who have to deal with a physical disability, whether temporary or chronic, medical researchers want to develop tools and techniques to help them live freely and comfortably. Research on existing devices, like wheelchairs, can simplify or enhance a user’s experience. Other researchers might be exploring ways to use newer technologies or developments, like smartphone apps or robotics, to find innovate ways to lend aid.
