Assistive Technology

Through the work over the past 25 years of the Breaking New Ground Resource Center, a large database of information on assistive technology appropriate for use in agricultural work sites has been developed. Portions of the database have been made available in printed form and distributed to farmers, ranchers, and rehabilitation professionals throughout North America. The most recent release is available in CD format and includes extensive information on enhancing accessibility to agricultural work sites. Figures 7.1 and 7.2 provide examples of the type of technologies included in the database (16). Additional information on resources available on assis-tive technology can be found at the Breaking New Ground Web site (www.breakingnewground.org).
