Microtechnology has an important role to play in maximizing the
independence of severely handicapped people, especially those with
few reliable voluntary movements. Such movements must be harnessed
efficiently to provide control over all aspects of life including
communication, mobility and the immediate environment. To highlight
the role of microtechnology in the day to day life of a severely
handicapped person living at home, a case study is presented. The
systems Mary uses for communication and environmental control are
described and their limitations discussed. Adaptive man-machine
interfaces are proposed and foreseeable developments in the fields
of speech technology and robotics are considered. Successful
introduction of high technology devices requires a full appreciation
of medical and social factors as well as those relating to the
technology. This is achieved through close partnership between the
clinical engineer and the rehabilitation consultant to the benefit
of the severely handicapped person.
