2021/1 | #assistive device #assistive technology #medical aids | DOI: 10.31287/

This study aims to clarify the definition of assistive technology (AT) that support independent living. The name and definition of AT in the Hungarian legislation is obsolete and does not keep in line with the international professional definition and guidelines. Therefore, the list of state-subsidised devices lag far behind the diversity of supply on the market, by this the accessibility of assistive technology is indirectly hindered.
