Author: Stephen M Bauer
Published: 2000
Publication: RESNA Conference: Orlando, Florida

Demand-pull technology transfer is a process that starts by identifying an industry's critical technological needs and then seeks technological solutions from parallel industries, the federal labs, research institutions and other technology developers. The Demand-pull Project on Wheeled Mobility identifies critical technological needs for the wheeled mobility industry (e.g. manual wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, scooters); develops problem statements representing those needs; solicited responses (technology proposals) from technology developers and then screens and offers promising technology proposals to manufacturers.
