Assistive devices and personal assistance

The vulnerable populations such as persons with disabilities and old aged people use assistive devices. These assistive devices are manufactured all across the world for different ailments with different features. Due to lack of information, the vulnerable people either cannot identify appropriate market or do not get the suitable assistive device. With the use of improper assistive device, the ailment can get worse so, proper assessment before purchasing and selling is necessary.
