Adhesive Formulations for Assistive TechnologyMaster Bond Inc. formulates numerous adhesive grades for the assembly of equipment, tools, devices, products for individuals possessing a disability or impairment. This technology enables people with special needs including activities of daily living (ADLs) to accomplish specific tasks independently that they were previously unable to perform such as eating, bathing, mobility, dressing, grooming. They also permit people to speak, work, write, see and hear. Master Bond compounds consisting of epoxies, silicones, cyanoacrylates, UV/visible light compositions are used on standard, modified, customized, high tech systems. These versatile, high quality materials provide safety, comfort, strength, dependability, reliability, durability and ensure all appropriate requirements/needs are satisfied. They enhance improved lifestyles/overall well being, prevent impairments, activity limitations or participation restrictions.

Doctors, teachers, rehabilitation engineers, occupational specialists, play a key role in recommending the most appropriate equipment, tools, devices for individuals with mobility impairment, cognitive disabilities, communication disorders, deafness, blindness and other disabilities.
