  • All of these technologies have had interest from other industries, indicating that the good health of the assistive tech sector can only be a good thing for society.

  • There is a lot off new movement, and there will be a lot of new results.

  • We apply cooled Advantage robotic technology, which attracts many people who do not have a relationship to any kind off person with a disability, so it opens the minds of many people.
