People with disabilities are an important and valuable section of our community and represent almost one in four of the population. Increasingly, as the population grows older, we can expect a higher percentage of people to live with a disability. This Prestige Event highlights three major areas:

  • Prosthetics
  • Vision
  • Digital Health

with emphasis on continued and future requirements for science and engineering resources to help people with disabilities to achieve much-desired independence in some aspect of their lives.
