Assistive technology or AT is any item or piece of equipment, software, or product that is used to help increase or maintain the independence of those who may need it. Examples can be any mobility aids such as;
- Our Uccello Kettle
AT helps support and assist individuals with limited strength, mobility, dexterity, and/or visibility to perform tasks they might otherwise find difficult or impossible.
With feedback from our customers, we have found that assistive tech like the Uccello Kettle has helped improve their quality of life, their confidence, and independence at home in the kitchen.
‘’The Uccello Kettle is the most amazing product I have ever come across. I was blown away by its functionality and how efficient and simplistic it is to use. It is sturdy, and safe. It’s so easy to make my tea now. It’s no longer a struggle and it doesn’t take me ages to make like it used to.’’

A Rise is the Demand for Assistive Technology
According to the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), over 1 billion people currently need assistive tech. This figure expected to double in the next decade as populations age.
What is great to see is how global recognition for the need to provide assistive tech is on the rise. So much so that consumer electronics and assistive products are converging, meaning even great commercialization of these technologies.
This could mean that you will eventually see assistive aids in your general supermarket, and mainstream retail instead of just in mobility stores and online.
There could possibly be a change in how these aids are presented to us. No longer will the function of aids be the only priority but form as well.
This is how the Uccello Kettle was born.
Uccello Kettle Makes It Mark in Assistive Technology
With it’s ergonomically designed handle and pivot mechanism, the Uccello Kettle is a significant innovation on traditional kettle designs which allows those who are less capable of working a kettle to make beverages with ease.
With the collaboration of Italian design, Australian innovation, standard, and patent protection, combined with British safety technology has brought both from and function to assisted living products.
