Accessibility for people with motor impairment
What is a motor impairment?
Motor impairment is a condition where a person has partially or fully lost control over parts of their body. Most commonly it affects the person’s muscles around their limb or limbs, causing them to be weaker or sometimes even paralyzed. People with motor impairments usually have trouble using their hands and have difficulty using a keyboard or a mouse. They can also become easily fatigued.
Examples of motor impairments
Why assistive technology matters
Many people globally are affected by a form of motor impairment and have to depend on the help of others. Being able to have access to the digital world can therefore be a huge benefit to them, as it can provide independence and make them feel more involved. That is why we believe in the future of assistive technology.
