The ZAB supports employees and trainees with disabilities, chronic-somatic and chronic-psychological illnesses in selecting and applying for suitable portable aids.

Portable aids or assistive technologies include, for example, noise protection headphones, mobile inductive hearing systems or the free ZAB app UniMaps. Permanently installed work aids can be lifting devices, pollen protection grids, monitor swivel arms and much more.

At the ZAB, various aids and assistive technologies can be tested and, if necessary, temporarily borrowed. In this way, the individually suitable aid can be found and the sometimes long application period with the responsible cost units can be bridged.
