Technology can be divided into three main groups depending on the type of technology it is. They are:
  • Information Technology
  • Assisted Technology
  • Medical Technology
Information technology refers to what is commonly known as computer technology. This type of technology involves the computer uses for visual, audio, numerical and textual information. This includes:
  • Processing
  • Storage
  • Transferring and relocating
  • Creating
  • Dissemination
This type is used on a daily basis often, without any conscious knowledge of it happening by the user. In this present day, it is hard to get on with daily life without coming across Information Technology. Examples are:
  • Television
  • Using computers
  • Within Stores and Malls
  • Transport
  • Music
  • Gadgets
Assisted Technology is the term used to describe technology that aids people. The best example of this is its use in improving the quality of life for people who suffer from disabilities. Examples in this include:
  • Hearing aids
  • Prosthetic limbs
  • Electric wheelchairs
  • Voice recognition hardware
  • Text speech aids
This term refers to any form of technology that complies with this use.

Medical Technology differs greatly to Assisted Technology. The difference is that this form is used to describe technology that helps medics with problems such as:
  • Surgery
  • Diagnosing
  • Monitor
  • Treatment
When we think of technology, it is often easy to assume that this refers to computer type items or similar. In Medical Technology, even a bandage, condom or dental floss is included within this term. These are items used to treat and prevent medical conditions.
Others include:

  • Scanners
  • Pacemakers
  • Epipens
  • Insulin pens
  • Oxygen masks
  • Surgical instruments
  • Life support machines
  • Syringes
