Interests: physical rehabilitation; understanding the factors that affect the adoption and use of assistive technologies; measuring the functional and quality-of-life outcomes of assistive technologies for persons who have a disability
The functional and psychosocial impacts of rehabilitation and assistive technologies are critical factors for their adoption and successful use by persons who have disabilities. There has been significant international research on measuring these factors, using a variety of approaches and tools. This Special Issue is intended to report the progress that has been made in advancing the widest international application of outcome measurements in this field, and the important gaps in knowledge that still remain. Articles in this Special Issue will address topics that include: the value of outcome measurement; description of frameworks, tools, and systems for measurement; and identification of unmet needs for measurement for underserved populations of technology users
