Hardware, in its broadest sense, would include anything that can be touched or held. This would include automatic door openers, braces, mouth sticks, wheelchairs, prosthesis, or any other tangible device used by an individual with a disability to improve their life.  Usually in a postsecondary setting, hardware refers to computer systems - computer keyboards, monitors, switches, trackballs, digital tape recorders, speech generators, assistive listening devices, scanners, or other electronic tools and components.

The two main types of computer hardware used in postsecondary settings are Apple computers and IBM/Microsoft compatible computers - Dell, Hewlett Packard, Assus, Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba, etc.
