A Workshop

December 19, 2012

The Keck Center of the National Academies Room 100 500 Fifth Street, NW Washington, DC 20001

Workshop Objectives

  • Focus on adults who by virtue of an inherited/congenital condition, accident, or disease(s) become impaired in their ability to be as independent as possible as they age.
  • Provide an overview on how the independence, community integration, and well-being of these individuals can be improved through access to and increased use of technology.
  • Examine existing and emerging technologies, with a focus on technologies most likely to be employed (“straddling promise and reality”).
  • Discuss barriers to deployment and adoption of technologies and reasons for abandonment of technologies already in use.
