The process of technology transfer has value 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 the commercialization of new or improved assistive technology products. 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 provides manufacturers with a needed resource option.
