Do you use AT and have a disability?

Published

Are you an end-user or carer who have or intend buying, smart technology or other products including monitoring or security devices? The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute want volunteer research participants to be part of a national study into assistive technologies (AT). The New and Emerging Assistive Technologies research seeks to address the implications of new and emerging AT for people living with disability and older people. (See survey details below).

The aim of the study is to identify the social and economic benefits and opportunities that AT does and can play in supporting independent living and the ability for people to age at home. It will investigate how people with disability perceive AT and their views on incentives and disincentives to invest in them; and what drives or does not encourage better AT policy.
