New Research on Assistive Technologies: Uses and Limitations $110.00
Editors: Deborah Combs
Book Description:
Over the past decade, several studies have shed light on how the Ambient Assistive Technology (AAT) may increase the life expectancy of older adults experiencing cognitive decline who continue to live in their own homes, as well as improve their autonomy and independence, facilitate their daily activities, and monitor their health status. These technologies can also assist in facilitating social inclusion, helping families, and supporting healthcare organizations. This book discusses AAT for people with dementia. It also discusses other assistive technologies which include robotics; web accessibility; hands free assistive technology; brain-computer interfaces; and it examines assistive technology integration in pre-service educators.
