Paper discusses the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (RERC)’s RecTech D4 project, which focuses on improving the health, wellness, and quality of life of people with disabilities by promoting and facilitating increased participation in physical activity and recreation. A growing body of evidence indicates that regular exercise is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The project promotes this through a centralized database for assistive technology (AT) equipment. RERC RecTech has also created a website that provides people with disabilities with efficient access to the data relevant to AT equipment via search engine. The web site can be found at http://www.rercrectech.org. This paper was presented at the 2005 annual conference of RESNA, the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America and is available on CD-ROM.
