Technical Aids are a long term investment in an independent life. With the right equipment a handicapped person can take a more active part in society. Regulations on funding technical aids vary from country to country. Your local Handy Tech Dealer will assist your search for the responsible organization. A universally valid rule for the application of technical aids is that being persistent normally pays off. Don’t be discouraged if your application was rejected. Often it is very helpful to get in touch with, and explain your individual needs directly to the person deciding on your application. Unfortunately there are countries with no established funding system for technical aids for the Blind and visual Impaired. There, Charities and NGOs can be of great help. All information on our homepage stated in German refers to the German funding system.
