Danish law and Assistive Technology

The focal point is to ensure equal treatment and equal opportunities for people with disabilities alongside other citizens.  Assistance is granted without regarding the person's financial situation. It is a basic democratic right to get the assistance one need for being able to function and participate in society. Support measures must, as far as possible, be financed via the tax system.
