This proceedings document contains approximately 250 papers and posters presented at a conference on the advancement of rehabilitation and assistive technology. Individual sessions focused on the following topics: quantitative functional evaluation, upper limb and therapeutic stimulation, human-computer interface developments, information networking, gerontology, clinical seating and mobility issues, robotics and advanced technology, systems development and speech synthesis in augmentative and alternative communication, sensory aids, clinical applications of adapted computer use, approaches to assistive technology service delivery, positioning and mobility, simulation for lower limb function, rural rehabilitation, job accommodations, clinical issues and research in augmentative and alternative communication, research in powered mobility design and control, assistive technology devices and evaluations, personal transportation, special education, technology transfer, and clinical concepts in powered mobility. Additional brief papers on similar topics were presented at poster sessions and are reprinted. Also provided are the text of papers presented at an international symposium on robotic manipulators in rehabilitation practice, presentations of the Wheelchair Standards Committee, and winning papers of the Easter Seal student design competition. Proceedings papers typically include an abstract, text, illustrations or graphs, address of the principal investigator, and references. (DB)
