Aging and assistive technology use

Technology and Disability

Author: Mann, W. C.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1997

Abstract:

Another group that is underserved by the assistive technology service delivery system is older persons with disabilities. Becuase of the projected increase in this population in the coming years and the comcomitant demand on health care, social services and assistive technology, it is important to examine the needs and concerns of this population in depth and move towards greater acceptance of and access to assistive technology for elders.
