The Governmental Accountability Office (GAO) recommended in 2012 that Social Security look into whether it should consider more fully assistive devices in disability determination. Social Security commissioned a report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine on the subject. The bottom line is that they recommended against making any change. They also recommended more research but Beltway Bandits always recommend more research. It was a naive recommendation from GAO to begin with, the sort of thing that makes sense mostly to someone who doesn't know how disability determination works at Social Security.
