RERC TechSAge is the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Supportive Technologies for Successful Aging with Disability and includes an interdisciplinary team of researchers from Georgia Tech, NCState, University of South Carolina, and Emory University.


To conduct programs of advanced rehabilitation engineering (RE) and technical R&D to increase knowledge about, availability of, and access to effective, universally-designed technologies that enable people to sustain independence, maintain health, safely engage in basic activities of daily living at home and community, and participate in society as they age with disability.

Core Principles

  • Focus on People with Disability who are Experiencing age-Related Limitations
  • A Basis in User Needs
  • Universal Design as the Fundamental Goal of all Efforts
  • Multi and Interdisciplinary Approach to Rehabilitation Outcomes
  • A Commitment to RE through Interdisciplinary Integration: Putting the “Rehabilitation Engineering” back in RERC.


RERC TechSAge is funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) under the US Department of Education.
