The survey is open to all stakeholders and in particular to those that use assistive products, potential users and their families. It is likewise open to professionals that treat / supply / fit and manufacture those assistive products. Aim of the survey is to establish a list of the 50 top assistive products. Such a list will help WHO member countries, including your government, in their legislation and health care planning to make those products available to those that will need it.
