For Consumers

Access to wireless services and technologies is vital to full participation in society for people with and without disabilities.  Therefore, consumers are an integral part of the RERC's research, development and training efforts .

Wireless RERC (Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center) has become a recognized leader on issues and solutions related to the accessibility and usability of mobile wireless products and services by people with disabilities. The Wireless RERC's mission is to promote equitable access to and use of wireless technologies by people with disabilities and encourage the adoption of Universal Design in future generations of wireless devices and applications.

In order to keep our Consumer Advisory Network participants informed on our progress, we mail out our quarterly Consumer Advisory Network Newsletter.
