Foundation for Assistive TechnologyJune 9 2014
The Foundation for Assistive Technology (FAST) aims to develop a thriving market in equipment that promotes independent living and meets the real needs of disabled and older people.
FAST works directly with academic researchers, industry, service providers, policy makers and voluntary sector organisations to raise awareness of the crucial importance of equipment to achieve independence. It also helps to enable end users to play a full role in the design of assistive technologies.
FAST provides expert analysis of research and development trends and service provision challenges. It also documents all of the current UK activity to research and design assistive technology, to reduce duplication and to highlight innovative and relevant product development.
