Image text: "Do you use adaptive equipment or assistive technology to get around, communicate, or complete tasks? Have you ever had trouble getting the equipment and technology you need? Have you ever struggled to get your equipment repaired or to make your equipment work better for you?"

Researchers at Purdue University are studying how disability and technology policy can change to make life better for people who use adaptive equipment and assistive technology.

This survey is for US residents.

Survey link:

If you use any of the following:
• Mobility equipment like wheelchairs, scooters, canes, walkers, prosthetic limbs, and more
• Dexterity equipment like hooks, grabbers, or other specialized manual tools
• Communication equipment like a talker or other AAC Device
• Assistive Software like Screen Readers, voice over, or eye trackers
• Adaptive computer interfaces like specialized keyboards, mice, buttons, or switches
• Or other similar devices

You are invited to participate in our study “Adaptive and Assistive Technology Users, Developers, and Technology Policy”, Purdue IRB 2022-759.

This survey of your experiences will take 10 to 20 minutes of your time and will help us transform technology policy to improve quality of life for Americans with disabilities.

The survey is uncompensated but I am also conducting a limited number of interviews for 75$ per hour. There is a place to leave your information in the survey if interested.
