Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profit organizations and agencies, IHEs, and tribes and tribal organizations for research projects on assistive technologies that may improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
Under this particular DRRP priority, applicants must propose a research project that is aimed at improving the independence, quality of life, and community living of people with disabilities--particularly seniors with disabilities--through assistive technology solutions for daily living. In carrying out a research project, a grantee must identify one or more hypotheses or research questions and, based on the hypotheses or research questions identified, perform an intensive, systematic study directed toward producing (1) new scientific knowledge or (2) better understanding of the subject, problem studied, or body of knowledge.
NIDILRR seeks research and development toward assistive technology applications and devices that address significant barriers to community living encountered by people with physical, sensory, psychiatric, or intellectual and developmental disabilities. Such technology products may include advanced human computer interfaces that let humans interact with computers in novel ways (Mathew, Al Hajj, & Al Abri, 2011), automation and/or robotic technologies that can perform activities with minimal human assistance (Goldberg, 2012), technologies that allow household members to control appliances, settings, and other aspects of their home environment (Matlabi, Parker, & McKee, 2011), and recreational technologies which increase access to and participation in recreational activities and environments by people with disabilities (Rimmer, Padalabalanarayanan, Malone, & Mehta, 2017).
NIDILRR also seeks research and development toward assistive technology applications and devices that address pressing health service delivery topics that are relevant to the lives of people with disabilities, such as pain management (Ghoseiri et al., 2018), telerehabilitation, or coordination and provision of home and community based services (Bendixen et al., 2007).
