As technology grows by leaps and bounds, life is becoming easier for people, but most especially, for those with disabilities. Those with physical or mental disabilities can regain their independence with Assistive Technology. Here at Ross Engineering we offer Assistive Technology Services to people facing any of the following challenges:

If you or someone you know has any of these disabilities, we can help.
