Disability Heritage: From the Medieval to the Local (Exhibit Photos)

Improvements in accessibility for people with disabilities can be seen throughout history. People have constantly seen that others need help and provide it. Medicine and technology have been advancing for a while, and for centuries people have done the best they can with the knowledge they had to help people. People have done their best to create treatments for illnesses or disabilities, whether through religion and prayer or medicine or a combination of both. Different people have different needs, and creating technologies and treatments to help people has been an occupation for centuries.
