@carrie_sant #OTalk I think it's a very "wide" concept and easily includes a lot of different kinds of tech.

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@carrie_sant @B1rger If it is my setting- generally is something like sock aid, dressing stick, and reacher. #otalk

#OTalk Q1.... Royal Commission on Long Term Care (1999), assistive technology refers to “any device or system that allows an individual to perform a task that they would otherwise be unable to do, or increases the ease and safety with which the task can be performed”

@carrie_sant #OTalk A barrier for me is not having AT just to trial. Few have the money to buy AT gadgets/products if they don't already know that they will be beneficial/haven't tried it.
Aideen O'Brien @aideenobrienot
@carrie_sant Age can sometimes be a barrier. Older service users are apprehensive about using new technology, fear of the unknown/failure. Effective education and demonstration of the tech is one way of combatting this.#OTalk
