dc.description.abstractThe world around us is evolving at an astounding rate. Assistive Technology developments have been foundational in this evolution and a catalyst for producing positive life-changing results for individuals with disabilities, especially as we age. This talk will present what’s new in AT and the Aging in Place movement as we explore where we were, where we are, and perhaps, where we are going. During the session presenters will share information about low, middle and high tech assistive technologies. Discussion will focus on tracking technological trends including apps, mobile devices, robotics, wearable technologies and more. Apps to assist with aging well will be shown and resources for tracking trends will be shared. There are many obstacles older individuals encounter daily that can hinder them from remaining at home and in the communities of their choice. Join us for an insightful session that will shed some light on assistive technology strategies, solutions and devices that are used to help individuals age successfully in communities of their choice. Presenters will share real-life examples of AT that assists with fall detection and prevention, environmental control, memory, healthy-living, hearing, seeing, communication, and computer access.en_US
