The process of technology transfer can provide industrial competitiveness, even in small markets such as assistive technology. However, this value cannot be realized until the process is fully understood and properly implemented. This paper presents a summary model of the entire technology transfer process, and describes how the process supports industrial competitiveness - particularly in assistive technology. Essentially, the technology transfer process requires cooperation between multiple stakeholder groups, across a series of activities, over an extended period of time. Implementing this process as a structured method can provide manufacturers with a needed option to achieve industrial competitiveness.
