Technology transfer is a mechanism by which new and innovative assistive technologies (AT) are brought to market for people with disabilities.  In order to ensure that new AT devices will meet the needs of the people who will use them, it is imperative that people with disabilities and service providers along with manufacturers and researchers working in the field play a role in needs identification and product definition.  This workshop will provide an interactive forum for participants to take part in a simulated wheeled mobility forum in order to learn about the process, moderation, and role of participants in new technology development.
