Abstract

The National Institute for Rehabilitation Engineering (NIRE), formed in 1967, provides custom-made devices, training, and onsite services for severely and multiply handicapped individuals. The purpose of the N.I.R.E. is to use today's technology to help people with disabilities to be more independent and self-sufficient in their everyday lives. The Institute is an onsite technology training organization and research and development facility, and designs custom-made devices for handicapped persons who are trial-fitted, trained, counseled, and evaluated in the field. NIRE's outreach programs provide most of their services and aids locally in schools, clinics, homes, and places of employment. The N.I.R.E. assists people of all ages with all types of disabilities. Services are offered with a sliding fee scale, and nobody is denied service based on inability to pay.
