AbleLink Smart Living Technologies - research
Our Research Defines Us
AbleLink researchers have conducted over 80 research and development projects, all designed to provide technology tools for increased independence for seniors, individuals with traumatic brain injuries and people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Our research has been supported by entities such as the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes on Health, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Beach Center on Disabilities at the University of Kansas, the Westchester Institute for Human Development, the ARC of the United States, and The Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., Foundation. All AbleLink research involves hands-on testing and evaluation by the very people the technology is intended to be used by, as well as the inclusion of all key stakeholders throughout each stage of the research process.
Current Research Projects
AbleLink's pursuit of research-based products and solutions is ongoing. The basis for virtually everything we do comes from a commitment of resources to clearly defined research and development efforts. Contrary to the common practice of first identifying an innovative technology and then looking for a problem for it to address, AbleLink first identifies real world needs and then seeks to develop technologies to support those needs.
