Title: A survey on the presentation of new assistive technologies to manufacturers
Authors: Jeffrey A Kohler, Brian D Kon

Publication: RESNA Conference: Minneapolis, MN

This paper will demonstrate how Aztech has fine-tuned its presentation of assistive technology presentations to manufacturers for potential sale or license using our feedback from a marketing survey. It will show what information is most valuable to the manufacturer in making new product decisions. Aztech, in collaboration with The RERC on Technology and Evaluation and Transfer, solicits assistive devices from inventors for commercial evaluation. For devices that meet a significant unmet need in the marketplace, we seek to license the device to a manufacturer who will bring it to market. The information is packaged in a way to satisfy the needs of the manufacturers and expedite the new product evaluation process.
