Technologies in the context of disability compensation at the workplace. Summary

Revermann, Christoph; Gerlinger, Katrin


For people with disabilities, technical developments are often associated with the hope of better social participation and integration into working life. This technological potential can be all the more effective the more the conditions, normative foundations and reciprocal links of the workplace are coordinated with the comprehensive determination of the respective individual conditions as well as the necessary measures of the responsible social institutions. From such a perspective, this book describes for the first time comprehensively how personal abilities can be developed as well as possible with the help of new technologies and how disabilities can be largely avoided or compensated for. It also discusses how environmental conditions can be designed through the use of technologies in such a way that they represent the lowest possible barriers to lifestyle and social participation for people with functional limitations. The authors describe the target group of these disability-compensating technologies, analyse the political, legal and socio-economic framework conditions for their use in the workplace and outline the potentials and trends of innovative or future technologies.
