Open Solutions

IT technologies may help effectively reduce the impact of serious impairments. They are rapidly changing and developing. It is necessary to find the most efficient solutions allowing us to help as large a number of people as possible with the limited resources available. "Open Solutions" are a proven method of reaching the widest target group possible, with limited resources and facilities.

Open Solutions dramatically reduce costs of assistive technologies, so it is also possible to help effectively to people from poor or less developed countries. It is the way to overcome the economical barriers.

Open solutions prefer cooperation to rivalry.

It also allows disabled people themselves to take part in the process of solving their problems.

By the term "Open Solutions" we particularly mean the solutions based on open and free standards and open non-restrictive licenses (GPL, BSD etc.).
