- Enhanced sensory or motor function of individuals with disabilities through the development of technology to support improved functional capacity;
- Enhanced workforce participation through the development of technology to increase access to employment, promote sustained employment, and support employment advancement for individuals with disabilities;
- Enhanced community living and participation for individuals with disabilities through the development of accessible information technology including cloud computing, software, systems, and devices that promote access to information in educational, employment, and community settings, and voting technology that improves access for individuals with disabilities; and
- Improved health-care interventions and increased use of related resources through the development of technology to support independent access to community health-care services for individuals with disabilities.
