Application of Assistant Technology for Rehabilitation of Limb-deformity
One of the occupational therapist's responsibllities is making selection and training in the use of assistant device. Assistant technology consists of products or devices that substitute for an impaired func-tion and allow the individual to perform an ac-tivity more independently. Assistant technology can be low -tech or high -tech. Low -tech devices are self-help ones that are helpful for people with disabilities in feeding, grooming, dressing etc. High -tech devices are electromechanical equipment, such as computer and environmental control system. A systematic evaluation must be done before making decision for using assistant technology.
