Assistive Device

An Assistive Device is any device that helps someone do something that they might not otherwise be able to do well or at all.

Generally the term is used for devices that help people overcome a handicap such as a mobility, vision, mental, dexterity or hearing loss.

Assistive devices to support people who have a hearing loss may help them hear better (hearing aids or ALDs) or they may take the place of hearing such as an alerting device, a TTY, or a computer (for email, chat services or access to IP-Relay).
