How is emerging technology helping people with disabilities?

Virtual reality and augmented reality can give people with disabilities access to experiences and therapies that would not otherwise be available. For instance, a wheelchair-bound senior could wear VR goggles and experience the rush of climbing a mountain or surfing a big wave. These positive experiences can lead to improved emotional well-being.
