This project examines the needs and requirements of technical aids for disabled people who are obese. It was proposed to us by the Danish Centre for Technical Aids in K?benhavn, Denmark. Our team examined the assistants of disabled obese people, and the following technical aids: wheelchairs, commodes, adjustable beds, hoists, and walking aids. The procedures employed were library and internet research, interviewing, and interactive observation. The results determined safer practices for assistants and modifications to problematic technical aids.
