The publication contains synopses of 55 projects funded under the European Commission's TIDE (technology initiative for disabled and elderly people) programme during its BRIDGE phase (1993-97). An introduction to the TIDE programme is provided which outlines its objectives and scope. The background to the programme is described and the response of sector actors to the BRIDGE phase call for proposals is summarised. The 55 projects are grouped into six domains: access to technology and related services; life at home and remote care; mobility and transport; control and manipulation; restoration and enhancement of function and user; market issues. Contact information for each project is given. Synopses of two projects funded under the COPERNICUS (Cooperation in science and technology with Central and East European countries) programme are included.
